Drop-In Hours

To accommodate as many students as possible when conferences are in highest demand, Writing Fellows offer drop-in hours around midterms and finals each semester.  Like any other appointment in the Writing Center, students are welcome to come at any stage in the writing process.  You can come with an introduction, an outline, a quote, a web, a few notes, a full draft, or just yourself.

Please note that while no appointment is necessary for drop-in hours, students are conferenced on a first-come, first-serve basis.  When you arrive, you will wait on the green couches on the south end of Barnard Hall 2nd Floor after signing your name on the drop-in sheet for the relevant hour. If there are 3-4 other folks on the list before you, then the Writing Fellow will likely not be able to help you during that particular drop-in hour. In that case, please consult the drop-in schedule above or on our scheduler to see if there are other hours you can attend.

Email writing@barnard.edu if you have any questions about drop-in hours.

For a guaranteed appointment, please reserve an appointment online.

To receive an email when drop-in hours become available for midterms and finals in the Spring 2018 semester, register for an account on our online scheduler, which will automatically add you to the Writing Center listserv.


The Science Fellows are holding drop-in hours for students  in General Chemistry 1 (BC2001) only. Students can come on a first-come, first serve basis during one of the times listed below.  All conferences will happen in the Writing Center in BAR 205. Depending on the number of people at the drop-in hour, these conferences can range from 20 mins to an hour.

If you are unable to meet with a Science Fellow during drop-in hours, we recommend you sign up for an hour-long conference using the online scheduler. To filter for a Science Fellow, please click the “limit to” button on the top bar of the online scheduler and select “Science Fellow” from the drop-down menu.
