Student Support Offices & Resources

Supporting DU Students

DU offers many academic and support resources, each aimed to support your success as a student.

More detailed information about the types of academic and support services can be found below. We also offer and encourage these resources, tips, and information for coping during COVID-19.

Subject-Specific Academic Support

  • The Writing Center

    Get personalized writing help.

    The University Writing Center works with all University of Denver students, staff, and faculty as part of the Writing Program's mission to create and sustain a robust culture of writing on the DU Campus.

    In their free 45-minute consultations, Writing Center staff work with writers individually and in groups to discuss their work and to help them hone their skills and practices, with an eye both on the texts at hand and on the writers' goals and needs.

    The Writing Center is accessible to both online and on-campus students.

  • The Math Center

    Find Math Tutors and Workshops

    The Math Center provides a place to study, to do homework, and to ask questions. Students are encouraged to work with other students in the same class. When they have questions, our assistants will give them hints and will guide them to find the answer. Working in small groups and having discussions with other students is one of the most effective ways to learn mathematics.

    The Math Center offers free, drop-in assistance for Business Calculus, Calculus I, II and III, Elements of College Algebra, and College Algebra and Trigonometry.

  • The Science & Engineering Center

    Receive Help with Science and Engineering Coursework

    The Science and Engineering Center is a collaborative space staffed by undergraduate and graduate learning assistants (LAs) trained to assist students with first and second year biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering lecture and laboratory courses. Our goal is to help students grow as problem solvers by assisting with homework sets, lab reports, and preparing for exams. The Science and Engineering Center is not a one-on-one tutoring center, but is rather a support system where students can get guidance from TAs as well as their peers. This center is open to all DU students. All services are free. Located in the north-west corner of the main floor of the Anderson Academic Commons (west of the writing center).

  • The Center for World Languages and Cultures

    We promote multi-cultural fluency

    The Center for World Languages & Cultures strives to prepare students to advance their skills to better understand and promote understanding of cultural and linguistic differences. To promote engaged learning, teaching, and practice of the world's languages and cultures; to integrate languages and cultures into all disciplines and fields of study; and to build and support interculturally competent communities through the exploration and experience of languages and cultures at the University of Denver with its local and global communities and partners.

    The Center for World Languages & Cultures offers a wide variety of programs and languages to best suit students' unique academic, professional and personal interests. The CWLC additionally offers language tutoring and advising to all students, faculty, and staff.

Research

  • The Research Center in Academic Commons

    Get Individualized Research Help

    The Research Center should be a student's first point of contact for questions about locating books, finding articles on a specific topic, or using electronic resources.

    The reference librarians at University Libraries also offer many instructional opportunities to help the DU community learn about library research. Library instruction sessions are one of the best ways to develop valuable research skills. Students who have the skills to find, evaluate, and use information are more successful in their classes and will be more successful at life-long learning after graduation.

    The Research Center offers expert guidance through the research process:

    • From refining a topic → to finding and evaluating relevant sources → to creating a bibliography.
    • A consultation session can ease anxiety about a project or paper and teach research and evaluation skills for life-long learning.
    • One-on-one research consultations are available to current DU students, faculty, and staff at any stage of the research process.
  • DU Libraries

    We offer research assistance and resources

    The University of Denver Libraries strive to provide outstanding collections and services to the University community. The Anderson Academic Commons brings together the University of Denver's main library and popular Academic Support Services in one convenient location.

    Online students have full access to all library databases and resources.
