CityU Has a New Bookstore!

Always striving to improve services to our students, CityU has partnered with a new bookstore, University Book Store, headquartered in the University District of Seattle, WA with branches throughout the Puget Sound area. This new partnership offers students and faculty multiple ways to save on the cost of course materials. 

  1. Multiple Locations –  Students have the option to buy books in person or online and pick them up at any University Book Store branch or have them shipped directly.
  2. Price Comparison – When students access ubookstore.com/cityu they’ll have the chance to compare bookstore prices against major online retailers, ensuring they get the best price available.
  3. Extensive Catalog – University Book Store has a huge catalog of books and resources, with options to buy the often cheaper, used copies of books, rent or download digital versions.
  4. Buyback – Students can earn cash for their used books by selling them back to the bookstore at the end of a course. The headquarters location in the University District offers buyback year round, while branches in Bellevue, Tacoma, Mill Creek, and Bothell hold buyback events from June through August.
  5. Financial Aid – Eligible students can charge books to CityU’s University Book Store account and costs will be deducted from their financial aid disbursement. Contact finaid@cityu.edu for more information about this option.

Students looking to purchase books for CityU courses can find a complete list of required and recommended resources for every CityU course on the Course Resources section of the library’s website.
