UNB students can seek free help to improve all aspects of their academic writing from the UNB Writing Centres located on both the Fredericton and Saint John campuses. In Saint John, students can meet with consultants in the Writing Centre located on the first floor of the Hans W. Klohn Commons.

Writing Centre consultants aim to help students improve their own writing abilities through individual tutoring sessions that focus on academic assignments. Students can get help to understand the particular demands of formal, academic writing in English, including such topics as clarifying ideas, making an outline, developing a thesis statement, thinking critically, structuring an argument, proofreading, editing, and revising. The goal is to help students improve the clarity of their own thought and expression.
