Academic Support Programs

Our programs help UW students realize their potential — at the University and beyond. We provide a space for all students to be included, challenged and supported in their educational journey.

The Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment (CLUE)

CLUE is the UW's free, late-night, multidisciplinary study center located in Mary Gates Hall. We offer drop-in tutoring, discussion sessions led by graduate and senior undergraduate students, as well as a writing center.
