Our Story

The UBC Bookstore supports students' success by providing innovative products and services, promoting community and building school spirit.

Whether you need textbooks, food, coffee, a laptop, tablet or other tech item, new clothes, residence supplies, stationery, gifts, or general books, stop by the UBC Bookstore.

We have three locations: Vancouver campus, Okanagan campus and the Sauder School for Business. We also run operations at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum store.

Operating since 1917, we've been part of the UBC community for almost 100 years. We've always placed the utmost importance on supporting the students, staff, faculty and the wider UBC community.

We are the 14th largest campus store in North America (out of over 2,600) and are very proud of the fact!

A meeting point at UBC, the Bookstore is where you can find the UBC Card office, Lost and Found, and the Parking desk.

Lastly, we are part of University Community Services - five service units which provide daily support to the UBC community, including the UBC Bookstore, UBCcard, Campus Security, Parking and Access, and Campus Mail.
