Mission: Motivate. Strengthen. Support.

What is the Learning Commons?

The Learning Commons is also known as the center for tutoring. We are located in the NEW Student Service Building on the 2nd floor. Our mission is to motivate students, strengthen their academic skills, and support their intellectual and ethical development in collaborative and safe environment.


Who Are We?

Our team consists of well-trained professional and student staff who are committed to enhance students’ self-worth and confidence through relationships of trust and a challenge and support approach.  All of our student tutors are faculty recommended and go through a vigorous hiring and training process to ensure that our students have the best experience while visiting the Learning Commons.


How Can We Help?

The Learning Commons consists of three main tutoring areas:

  •  Writing Center  (writing support)
  •  Math Lab (math support)
  •  Peer Tutoring (general subject tutoring, such as science, accounting, finance, and statistics)

All of our tutoring services are FREE for students enrolled at UNT Dallas. Whether you feel like you need extra resources and tools or just want to extend your learning in a social environment, the Learning Commons is here to help. We also offer FREE online tutoring services through Smarthinking. Check out the Smarthinking tab for more information. 


Hours of Operation

The Learning Commons is open 7 days a week to accomodate our UNT Dallas students, except during summer. The Writing Center operates on an appointment basis, so students must schedule appointments online, over the phone, or in person to visit with a writing tutor. All other subject tutoring occurs on a walk-in basis as long as a tutor is available. Not all tutors work every day, which means that all subjects may be not be available at all times. For schedules for specific tutors and/or subjects, visit the "Math Lab" or "Science" tabs for more information.
