Campus Resources

The Academic Skills Center is one of many campus resources available to students to help with academic enhancement. Part of being a successful student is using the resources available to you each term.

Helpful Resources on Campus

Office Hours with Professors

Faculty have regular office hours and are often best able to assist you with the course material.

Reference/Content Librarians

The College librarians are an important resource for finding information. For more information, visit the Dartmouth College Library, chat with a librarian online, or stop by the reference desk on the first floor of Berry Library.

RWIT

RWIT, the Student Center for Research, Writing and Information Technology, is a one-stop shop where students can meet with a peer writing tutor to discuss a paper, research assignment, or multi-media assignment. RWIT is located in the Reference Section on the first floor of the Baker-Berry Library.

Pre-Health Advising 

The Health Professions Program offers advising for undergraduates just entering the field, help applying to graduate schools, and a directory of opportunities for pre-med students. See also the Nathan Smith Society. NSS offers extracurricular opportunities for pre-med students.

Student Accessibility Services

Students with learning differences and/or mobility, vision, or hearing-related impairments at Dartmouth have met the same rigorous standards of admission that all other Dartmouth students have met. Once admitted to the College, students with disabilities are entitled to register to receive certain reasonable accommodations from the College in order to participate in all programs, services, and activities. We view our relationship with individual students as a partnership in which we promote pride in the value of one's disability-related experience, self-advocacy, and self-determination.

Undergraduate Dean's Office

The Undergraduate Deans in Carson Hall, Suite 125 provide advising on academic, social and personal issues. Check Bannerstudent to see who your dean is. In addition, the Dean's Office Student Consultants (DOSC's), are senior students who advise students about D-plans, leave term opportunities, and major planning, among other things.

Counseling and Human Development Office

Sometimes students experiencing academic difficulty are facing stresses in a number of areas in their life. The Counseling & Human Development office provides short-term individual counseling, a variety of support groups, medication evaluation, and crisis services. Counseling & Human Development is located on the second floor of Dick's House.

Student Wellness Center

The Student Wellness Center helps students reach their full potential by fostering holistic wellness. The Student Wellness Center promotes positive change for both individuals and the Dartmouth community by giving students the knowledge and tools to take care of themselves, each other, and the community. This office provides individual consultations, prevention efforts, and educational outreach to the campus community to encourage healthful behaviors and minimize harmful ones. The Student Wellness Center is located on the 3rd floor of Robinson Hall.

Teaching Science Fellows

The Teaching Science Fellows are recent Dartmouth graduates who partner with the faculty of introductory biology and chemistry classes to make them more accessible to all students, regardless of science background. The fellows work in the classroom with a specific class each term, but are available to meet with any student taking STEM classes. Beyond academic support, they’re available as a resource on how to thrive at Dartmouth, for everything from study strategies to balancing your course load. They just went through it all themselves, and are here to help!
