Welcome to the Maynooth University Writing Centre.   The Writing Centre is located in Education House, North Campus.

The Maynooth University Writing Centre offers free, friendly, non-judgemental writing help to any student, undergraduate or postgraduate, regardless of course, degree or level. The support we offer is primarily through one-to-one appointments, where students can discuss their writing with peer/expert tutors.  In addition, Writing Centre staff offer writing workshops, support writing groups, engage in discipline specific work, and research in academic writing and related fields. 

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you at the Centre.
