The Office of Learning Resources provides professional consultation services in university relevant skills such as academic reading, writing, study strategies, and time management to the Penn community. This academic support is provided through a varied menu of services and programs.
APPOINTMENTSIndividual instruction is the backbone of the program. Students can make appointments for one-on-one consultations with a Learning Instructor to address concerns and build upon already strong study strategies. Call 215-573-9235 for an appointment.
WALK-INSWalk-in hours are available during the academic year at the Weingarten Learning Resources Center (Stouffer Commons - Suite 300): Noon-3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 4-7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Walk-ins are 30 minutes and are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
