Administrative history

The UBC Bookstore is owned by the University and operated by University staff in co-operation with faculty and students to provide the campus community with course textbooks, reference works, and office supplies. The Bookstore is prepared to supply all course supplies required by students, including books, notebooks, instruments and all kinds of specified and general stores. Over the years, the Bookstore has expanded into a significant academic bookstore in British Columbia. It now regularly stocks a wide range of available and educational titles for the convenience of students, faculty, staff of the University, and the public.
