Welcome to the University Learning Center (ULC), where New School students can receive academic support in areas including writing, math (PDF), ESL, and graduate writing. The ULC also holds regular workshops aimed at improving students' writing and other academic skills.
Our writing sessions support development through constructive feedback and technical guidance, designed to help students clarify their ideas and evaluate their work. The ULC is not a proofreading or editing service; rather, our tutors work with students to identify areas that need improvement and offer advice about making adjustments.
Explore our website to see all that the ULC has to offer or, better yet, drop in for a tour. The ULC is located at 71 Fifth Avenue (between 14th and 15th Streets) on the ninth floor.
