The tutors of the writing lab offer writing consultations to support students in writing academic papers.

Our tutors support students in structuring and writing their academic papers by helping them understand and independently manage their writing processes. The goal of tutoring is to provide guidance for self-help so that students could improve their writing skills and produce academic papers on their own.

What to expect during a consultation?

During individual and group consultations, our tutors will help you practice various writing techniques. They can help you brainstorm for the topic or help with different aspects related to searching and reviewing the literature. Our tutors can work with you on reading strategies, writing project planning, and time management.

How to book an appointment

You can schedule an individual tutoring appointment by logging into our open access Moodle room "Schreibwerkstatt Peer Schreibberatung.” There you will find a list of available time-slots and further information about tutoring services, peer tutors, and practice materials.

We invite you to join an open writing group that meets on Fridays from 11.00 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. in room 112 in the Central Library. These writing group sessions are supervised by our peer tutors. You do not have to book an appointment to participate in our writing group sessions. Participation over Zoom is also possible.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on Campus Nord. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. The university can also be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The Airport Express is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
