The Commons

The Commons Computing Support Area, located on the main floor of the QEII Library, is a central computing resource to facilitate research writing, presentation creation and more. There are collaborative stations for group work as well as standing express stations (15 mins or less). A new satellite Commons is now located underneath the clock tower.

The Writing Centre

The Writing Centre is a free facility for all Memorial University students, undergraduate or graduate, who want help with their writing. Staffed by a director and by university students trained as writing tutors, the Writing Centre's mandate is to help university students become better writers and critical thinkers.
