New Students Blog - Summer 2017


Hello proud & future Gryphs!

Welcome to Guelph & congrats on selecting our fine institution. We are the Co-op Bookstore - 1 of 2 textbook stores on campus. Started in 1913, we are independently owned & run by the students of Guelph. Having a choice is a bit unusual but Guelph has a long proud tradition of extremely active & involved students - & the Co-op Bookstore is testament to this spirit.

We're located in the lower level of Johnston Hall & we're here to help. Frequently called "the used bookstore", we also carry new books, eBooks, access codes & coursepacks - all of course requirements for your semester. Our small space inspires us to offer a full service textbook counter. Tell our staff your course codes or show them your schedule & they'll grab your books for you.  We'll then review those books with you, letting you know what is required, what’s recommended, & what format choices you have.

Can’t make it into the store?  Our book listings & prices can be found online where you can also order books for pickup or delivery.

One of our most popular programs - Fall Textbook Reservation - is now open & available to you. Check the deets on our website and see if this is right for you.

We have many other exciting things to offer you:  Co-op membership, our eco programs, buyback, student friendly return policies & the co-op model as a tool for world domination (CHANGE - we mean world change!).  Congratulations once again - we can’t wait to meet you!  We’re open all summer so drop in if you’re on campus, check our website, or contact us if you have any questions.

See you in September!                                                                                                                                  Your Co-op Bookstore
