About Us

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Loyola Marymount University provides academic support for all LMU students.

Iggy in the ARC Loung
This is Iggy. Iggy loves to study and hang out. That's why Iggy loves the ARC. Iggy is smart. Be like Iggy.‌‌

T‌he mission of the ARC is to promote engaged academic citizenship and to provide opportunities for students to become more fully integrated into the rich and diverse culture of the university. The ARC Learning Outcomes‌ support this mission.

Our office offers content tutoring for gateway courses in subjects such as Chemistry, Economics, and Modern Languages.  Certified ARC peer tutors provide one-on-one writing support for papers in any class and lead a wide variety of writing workshops on topics including researching tools, addressing audience, citing sources, quoting and paraphrasing, and written argumentation. 

The ARC also supports a variety of programs for special populations, such as the First To Go Community, which serves first-generation college students on campus, and programs for the entire campus community, such as the LMU Common Book, which brings faculty, students, and staff together for a shared academic experience. 

The ARC is located on the second floor of Daum Hall. All services are included in the cost of tuition. We encourage you to explore the many resources we offer by browsing our website.
