The San José State University Writing Center offers a variety of resources to help students become better writers, and all of our services are free for SJSU students. It's difficult enough being a college student, so why let a writing assignment add to your stress? We'll be your guides through the often bewildering world of words, and you'll emerge with the communication skills necessary to your success as a student.

Writing Center Location Update

The Writing Center has fully relocated to one centralized location on the second floor in the MLK Library as of September 14, 2022.
