Student Learning Commons: Facts & feedback


During COVID-19, Student Learning Commons services continue.
For the complete range, including consultations, support, workshops, handouts, and groups, see SLC services continue online.  



Officially launched in Fall 2006, the Student Learning Commons (SLC) is an academic learning centre mandated to assist and support undergraduate and graduate students in their academic pursuits.

The SLC provides writing and learning support services across the three SFU campuses, including support for students in W, Q, and B courses, international students, English as an Additional Language (EAL) students, college transfer students, and many others.

Services are provided through workshops, personal consultations, print and online resources, as well as through classroom collaborations with faculty and other instructors. The SLC works closely with the Library, Student Services, Faculty Advisors, and many others, to provide effective "one stop, one step" academic support services for all SFU students.
