The Writing Center staff strongly recommends appointments made at least one business day in advance of service. Please call 214-333-5474 to schedule an appointment.

We serve walk-ins on a first-come basis as time allows.

Patriot Saturdays: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., by appointment only.


The UWC closes Monday through Thursday from 12 noon until 1 p.m. and Fridays from 12 noon to 1:15 p.m. for lunch. We also faithfully close for Chapel on Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. Please check the official DBU calendar for holiday closures. If the University closes early the day prior to a holiday, we follow suit and close early, too. Hours vary with seasonal breaks, including summer. Call for detailed information. Major holidays, such as Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Independence Day find us celebrating with the rest of the nation.

COVID-19 Procedures

Please check back for COVID-related updates and for holiday closings and hours. The Writing Center remains committed to helping Dallas Baptist University students with their writing needs in conjunction with current safety guidelines. We have arranged for our office to provide proper distancing and safeguards. In addition, we continue to utilize contact-free assistance through Blackboard's Collaborate.
