Launched in Fall 2006, the Student Learning Commons (SLC) is an academic writing and learning centre with the mandate to assist and support students in their academic pursuits. The Student Learning Commons (SLC) offers expert and friendly help with academic writing, learning, and study strategies -- in an environment of collaboration, discussion, and peer learning.

Our Vision

Every SFU student will feel empowered academically and have a sense of belonging to a community of learners and writers.

Our Mission

At the Student Learning Commons, we believe mentorship leads to empowerment, ability, and confidence. We nurture a community of learners and writers through workshops, consultations, conversations, and resources. We support lifelong learning, transformation, and growth.


You can find SLC services on all three campuses.
