Writers may schedule one appointment per week, up to two weeks ahead of time, using their online scheduling system. A second weekly appointment is available on a walk-in basis. Appointments normally are 45 minutes in length.
The Writing Center is a part of NYU's Expository Writing Program. It is located at 411 Lafayette, 3rd floor. The phone # is (212) 998-8866. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please go to NYU Writing Center's website.
Resources for Proper Citation
All students are expected to pursue and meet the highest standards of academic excellence by adhering to the norms of a serious intellectual community (see Academic Code). This includes the proper citation of ideas, data and published work of others. The following resources serve as a guide for students who are unclear about the rules or styles of citation. These references are universally recognized as acceptable by scholars and very adequately demonstrate how students should handle the issue of proper citation of material. All are available at the NYU Library or NYU Bookstores.
