University Bookstore

Important COVID-19 Update

UW-Eau Claire is taking precautions because of COVID-19. Because all 10,000+ UWEC students need textbooks and class materials when classes begin this fall, it is critical for students to order textbooks and class material online through the University Bookstore website. It is our goal to limit the number of patrons allowed in the store and avoid community spread for our Blugold campus community.

Please place orders through the University Bookstore website no later than August 15 to allow enough time for shipping. Orders placed after August 15 will still be processed in a timely fashion with the hope that materials will be delivered before the first day of classes. Please plan accordingly. Barnes & Noble places a $5 shipping fee on RENTAL textbook orders only. If students PURCHASE a pen, notebook or textbook, the shipping is free.

Resident students ordering online have options:

  1. Resident students can order textbooks and class materials to be delivered to their home address.
  2. Resident students can order textbooks and class materials to be delivered to their campus address. All students ordering online must use the following address when shipping to campus:

    Student's name
    Room number and building name
    642 University Drive
    Eau Claire, WI 54701

    Additional residence hall mail/package information

    Students may pick up orders at the Towers desk by showing their Blugold ID after 6 p.m. up until the first day of class, September 1, 2020.
  3. If students are coming to campus August 15-16 and August 22-23 for early drop-off, the Bookstore will be open from 10am -2pm. To maintain capacity limits and social distancing, employees will be pulling books for you if you choose to come in person to get your textbooks. 

    You must have with you: 

    A printed copy of your schedule

    Your Blugold ID CARD. If you do not have your card yet you must request your books to ship and enter your 7 digit ID number in when placing your order. 

    Payment method for any purchase books or supplies. 

    If you are missing any of the above you will be asked to return to the line when you have these items. Books or spots in line will not be reserved. 

    Picking up textbooks is the only service provided on these days. The Bookstore will not be open to purchase Blugold apparel or any retail items.
