Schreibzentrum / Writing Center

The Schreibzentrum / Writing Center offers many different services to students and instructors concerning writing in German and English language and the writing processes, techniques and strategies. The individual language skills and cultural background of the writer will be taken into consideration. Our aim is – in cooperation with the Language Center – to advance a comprehensive, university-wide writing culture.  

We are the first and the only bilingual writing center in Germany. We offer writing consultations and workshops in German and English and provide valuable writing resources in both languages. Students can make use of the services we offer at every stage of their writing process, e.g. through individual consultations, our Writing Lab, the Time to Write, or our (online) writing resources.

We are also there for you in Corona times. We conduct writing consultations online in accordance with data protection regulations. Start the VPN channel and make an appointment with the writing consultants here.
