About us

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 or Rez supplies, stationery or gifts, or general books, try the UBC Bookstore. We have three stores: Vancouver campus, Okanagan campus and the Sauder School for Business  (we also run the operations for 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! Learn more about the UBC Bookstore's role at UBC, what it offers and how to work in partnership in this short video.

A meeting point at UBC, the bookstore is where you go for the UBC Carding 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: the UBC Bookstores, UBCcard, Campus Security, Parking and Campus Mail.

 We provide donations in the form of sponsorship and gift cards/giveaways to many campus groups and organizations.

 Cash back: get $20 or $40 cash back at our cash tills with a purchase.There is no need to go to the bank or pay ATM fees anymore. Available at the main Vancouver campus bookstore, the Sauder store and Okanagan.


The UBC Bookstore is part of University Community Services
