Get Your Textbooks

The Bookstore makes getting your textbooks easy, leaving you time to get an early start on studying. 

PLEASE NOTE:  DURING THE 2020-21 ACADEMIC YEAR, ALL COURSE MATERIAL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED ONLINE AT SHOP.UDAYTON.EDU.  FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR CUSTOMERS AND OUR STAFF, APPOINTMENT TIMES ARE OFFERED FOR PICK UP ONCE THE ORDER IS FULFILLED.

Purchase in the Bookstore (currently unavailable)

A staff member can help you find what you need! Bring a copy of your schedule and your student ID card with you; our staff will require one of these two items in order to help you find your books.

  •  Textbooks are located on the second floor of the University's Bookstore, in Marianist Hall.

  •  Shelves are arranged alphabetically by the author's last name.  Tags on the shelves list all courses, sections, and professors using this material for the semester.

  •  Make sure you buy the correct book for your section.

  •  Not all books are required; some books are optional if the course material is strictly supplemental to the course.

  •  If no Author tag is available for your book, then it may not have been officially requested by the instructor or the book could be listed under a different author name.  Please check with our staff if you experience issues locating materials.

Order Online

Save yourself a trip by ordering your textbooks online. In order to accommodate and improve your experience, all web orders are shipped via UPS. Please be aware that we are unable to ship to residence hall addresses.
