- The University Store is required to limit the number of customers in the store at one time so there may be a short wait before you allowed to enter.
- Online Textbook Orders: We encourage students to ship their orders to their home or local address (all order over $49 ship for free). For in-store pick-ups of online orders, we are working diligently to have a plan in place to distribute textbooks to students in the safest and most efficient way. To combat high volumes seen in the University Store for students electing to pick-up in-store, we will be offering an alternative pick-up location as well as curbside pick-up.
