I realize space is a very valuable commodity on campuses, but I really hope you are able to convince your administration to provide space for your services. Here are some reasons you can provide them to try to nudge them toward accommodating your needs.

* Safety: Having a centralized location allows you to provide services to students in an environment which is academically and physically safe for the students.

* Cost: Having a centralized location allows your tutors to work with multiple clients simultaneously and allows for easy transition between clients.

* Resources: Having a centralized location allows you to have books, manipulatives, technology, and other resources for learning readily available to support student learning.

* Supervision: Having a centralized location allows you and/or your staff to more easily monitor learning and assist as needed.

I am sure other members of the listserve can provide other reasons for you to your own space on campus. Good luck.

Subject: Tutoring Center Space?

Hello Everyone,

Do any of your Colleges/Universities NOT have a TUTOR CENTER?  Reason I ask is because we have Tutoring Services, but no actual center.  If you don't, what are some things you do to combat the challenges that come along with not having a designated place for students to go for help?

Thanks!
