Services for Students with Disabilities

Formal and informal student-centred supports, such as counselling, academic accommodations, and specialized services are available year-round to students registered with the Centre for Students with Disabilities. Students who think they may have learning or physical disabilities should contact Services for Students with Disabilities (ext. 339), 51 McCaul St. 2nd level, as soon as possible.

It is important to register early in the semester to ensure the accommodations can be scheduled by the start of the semester.


Online writing resources

“Papers, Expectations, Guidelines, Advice and Grading” by Dan White and Jeannie DeLombard. This is an excellent resource specifically designed to help students write strong essays in English literature courses. Strongly recommended.

Online writing resources (University of Toronto), a rich site offering help on various academic genres, the mechanics of writing, etc.

Hypergrammar (University of Ottawa, an excellent site for grammar and style)

OWL (Purdue University, another excellent resource)
