Learning Resource Center

The Learning Resource Center provides a variety of educational support services to all SJU students to maximize their academic success and life-long learning.

The Learning Resource Center provides tutoring for most entry level college courses and requests can be accessed online at  or by phone at 610-660-1775.  Tutors are undergraduates who have successfully completed the course.  Study strategies assistance is available by appointment with the LRC Learning Specialist at 610-660-1846.  This office works with learning techniques for most courses. 

The Writing Center

All writers, from beginners to professionals, need feedback from trusted readers. The Writing Center is a place where you can get that feedback.  We serve student writers at any level of expertise, in any stage of the writing process. The Center is staffed primarily by Writing Fellows, undergraduates who have been trained as peer tutors, and who have a keen interest in both writing and tutoring. Writing Center services are free of charge.  The Writing Center has moved and is now located in 162 Merion Hall, on the Maguire Campus.  It is open during the following hours:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays from 4pm to 8pm
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30am to 8pm
  • Friday from 11:30am to 2pm

Disability Services

Any student with a disability that limits one or more major life activity (such as seeing, hearing, walking, talking, learning, caring for one's self, breathing, or working), has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment, may be eligible for reasonable accommodations.

In order to receive services, students must provide documentation to the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities. Documentation should be within the last three years and conducted by a qualified professional. While some students come to college without anticipating any need for services, it is suggested to become registered with the office in the event that support services or reasonable academic adjustments are needed.
