University of Calgary Calendar 2009-2010 Student Services Bookstore

The Bookstore is proud to be owned and operated by the University. A portion of every dollar spent at the Bookstore is re-invested towards the improvement and maintenance of the campus community.

The main Bookstore is located centrally on campus, on the ground floor of the MacEwan Student Centre. We offer required and recommended textbooks for courses at the publisher's list price and make every effort to obtain the least expensive options for students. We also provide a used textbook buyback service, a free online classified service, and a buyback alert service. In our digital world, books can be located from a variety of sources, however your campus Bookstore offers the advantage of having exactly the books you need, in stock for the beginning of classes, all with a hassle-free returns policy.

We are more than just textbooks! The main Bookstore carries one of Calgary's largest selections of general reading books, and we can special order any book still in print. We are also pleased to offer University of Calgary clothing and souvenirs, Dinos merchandise, and a wide selection of stationery and art supplies. We also operate Seasons Card and Gift shop (one stop gift shopping!) and are proud to brew Starbucks coffee in our café.

The Bookstore has a secure online store that features the required and recommended textbook list each semester, online ordering for textbooks, clothing, gifts, and select general reading titles. Order your textbooks online, with the option of in store pick-up or delivery and avoid the back-to-school rush! Check out our site at http://www.calgarybookstore.ca.

The Bookstore operates 5 other satellite locations. The Medical Bookstore located in the Health Sciences building serves the Faculty of Medicine and the general Medical community by offering textbooks, general medical reference, stethoscopes and other instruments, and electronic media. Stuffs Food and Convenience Store is located in the Dining Centre to serve the residency community. The Art Store is located in the Art Building, with easy access for all Art students. The Microstore is located across from the main Bookstore, and offers the campus community academic pricing on computer hardware and software.
