University of Victoria Bookstore
The UVic Bookstore is owned and operated by the University, operates on a break-even basis and provides a variety of items essential to academic success. All textbooks requested by faculty are stocked in the store. Textbook listings are available in-store, three weeks prior to the beginning of each term. At the beginning and end of each semester, the Bookstore buys back used textbooks for up to 50% of the new book retail price if they’re in demand.
The Bookstore’s general book department carries a comprehensive selection of both academic and general titles and can special order any book in print that is not currently stocked. The bookstore has Print-on-Demand technology with an Espresso Book Machine which can print, bind and trim a library quality paperback book in minutes. The Bookstore also distributes academic calendars and handles regalia rentals for grads.
The Bookstore offers a wide selection of contemporary UVic crested clothing and giftware, school and stationery supplies and has a unique gift section.
