The University bookstore is currently closed in preparation for the transition to Barnes & Noble College management. The bookstore will reopen on Friday, December 6 and will be open late for Christmastime on Campus. A 20 percent discount will be offered to everyone who visits the store during the event. 

Under our new contract with Barnes & Noble College, employees will receive a 15 percent discount (up from 10 percent!) and departments will receive a 20 percent discount on all items in the store.

Students can take advantage of the Barnes & Noble Price Match Program, which matches the advertised price on textbooks offered from local brick-and-mortar stores or online retailers. This program excludes online marketplace prices.

Student Financial Services will have a link for student funds for books, as we had previously. This will be available before the spring semester and details are forthcoming.

The bookstore will be open regular hours on December 20, the last day that UE is open before the winter break. In addition, the bookstore will be open Saturday, December 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for holiday shopping needs.

Book buybacks will take place in the Student Media Center in Ridgway University Center, Room 274. Students should bring their UE ID during buybacks:

• Friday, December 6, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
• Saturday, December 7, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
• Monday – Thursday, December 9-12, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
• Friday, December 13, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Please join us in welcoming Barnes & Noble College to our UE family!
