Welcome Back!

The Bookstore is open for in-store shopping. Our store will be open 9 AM - 5 PM, Monday to Friday. We are open 11 AM to 4 PM on Saturday. Please see store hours for special rush hours.


Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Getting Your Textbooks.

You can shop in-store for textbooks. Our text floor is open for students to shop for all their course materials. You can also purchase them online for pick up or delivery. If picking up in store, you must wait for an email indicating your order is ready for pick up. Bookings are not required to pick up your order. All order pick ups can be made at the Info Desk inside the Bookstore.

We will do our best to have all in store pick ups ready 24-48 hours after ordering. Shipping will take 5-10 business days for your order to be delivered during peak periods.

When coming to the store to pick up your order, please ensure you have you order confirmation and a valid piece of government ID. You also must fill out the U of G's COVID-19 Screening form before coming to campus.
