Campus Resources

The University offers year-round support for undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other non- faculty researchers who wish to strengthen their command of the written and spoken word, their research and teaching practices, and their self-presentation and multimedia skills.

Digital Learning Lab

The Digital Learning Lab is a fully-staffed state-of-the-art multimedia maker space that supports courses with unconventional formats, innovative course assignments, and co-curricular digital learning components. Through one-on-one training and workshops, professional and student staff can help you plan and execute your 3-minute video for Princeton Research Day. For example, you can reserve time in the recording studio to ensure high audio quality. 

The DLL is located on the first floor of the Lewis Science Library. Please email us at [email protected] to schedule a time to meet.  


The university holds an institutional license with the web application BioRender, a resource that allows for easier and more intuitive creation of visually engaging, scientifically accurate graphics (figures, diagrams, and illustrations) that can be used in your PRD video and/or Showcase poster. 

Princeton Writes

Princeton Writes helps both students and employees communicate more effectively in nonacademic contexts. Through workshops, one-on-one tutorials, and peer practice groups, Princeton Writes can help you present yourself and your research to a general audience in a clear, concise, and compelling way. For more information, please contact [email protected].

The Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) advises undergraduate students engaged in research across disciplines and class years. OUR staff can talk with you about your academic and professional research plans and how participating in a public-facing research event can advance your goals. To book an appointment, please visit OUR’s advising page.

The Writing Center

Every writer needs a reader, and the Writing Center has a reader for every writer! Trained to respond to assignments in any discipline, Writing Center Fellows offer free, one-on-one conferences about writing at any stage in the process. We offer in-person conferences on the 2nd floor of the New South Building when classes are in session, and we hold virtual conferences over Zoom during breaks and over the summer.

To meet with a Writing Center Fellow, you can either make an appointment in advance or join our drop-in Writing Lab. As you’re preparing your Princeton Research Day video, come with whatever you've got—ideas, rough notes, or a draft of your script. We can also offer feedback on a “live” rehearsal of the video or a mock presentation of your poster and/or exhibit.
