Diliman Learning Resource Center

About DLRC



Learning Resource Centers (LRCs) were established by the UP Board of Regents on April 17, 1997 to supplement, complement and coordinate all learning assistance programs and instructional support services to students in each campus and to ensure that the goal of promoting academic excellence will be realized in a more caring and nurturing environment. The Diliman Learning Resource Center (DLRC), simultaneous with LRCs of other autonomous UP units, was institutionalized on April 28, 1997. It is supervised by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and is headed by a Director.

When it opened in 1997, the DLRC was based at the National Engineering Center. In 1998, through the funding assistance of then Congressman Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, the former dining hall of Kamia Residence Hall was converted into the base of DLRC.

The DLRC offers free peer-assisted tutorials in Mathematics (Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus), Science (Chemistry, Physics and Biology) and Engineering Sciences as well as simulated examinations, i.e., intensive written exams designed, conducted, and discussed by competent peer tutors. It also provides students with internet-ready computers for their research, reviewers and self-learning modules in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics, and a well-maintained area conducive to studying, project- making, or small group meetings.

Peer Mentorship and Tutorial Services

The Diliman Learning Resource Center (DLRC) facilitates tutorial services for students through peer mentorship and peer learning groups. It gathers volunteer peer tutors to assist other students in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Language, and other major subjects. Interested volunteers may sign up through http://bit.ly/DLRCTutors using their UP Mail account (name@up.edu.ph). They are required to submit their True Copy of Grades (TCG) or CRS screenshot, current Form 5, and curriculum vitae. 

(e)Kapihan sa Diliman

The Kapihan sa Diliman (or, its virtual version, the eKapihan sa Diliman) is a semestral two-week program that offers a 24/7 study hub for students during the finals week where they are provided with strong internet connection, free tutorial services, free-flowing coffee, snacks and healthy meals, sleeping mats, and showering facilities at the DLRC office in Kamia Residence Hall.

It transitioned online at during the remote learning semester. During the eKapihan, virtual peer tutorials of different subjects are conducted along with mental health management webinars, and fun quiz bees with UP merch giveaways to foster camaraderie and boost morale.

A safe learning environment through Discord is also managed where UP Diliman students can connect with other colleges and interact there and have academic and casual discussions at any point during the semester. Students may log in anytime and participate in various channels, share playlists, and chat casually if they need online study buddies.

Other Services

During a regular semester, DLRC also offers affordable computer rentals and printing services. However, these are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
