Reunited: Return to Campus – Bookstore Update


As you prepare for the fall 2020 semester to begin, I wanted to share with you key items regarding the University Bookstore.

The ASU bookstore is now open for ordering textbooks, supplies and merchandise online with shipment to your home address or for curbside pickup at the Student Center. Payment must be made via debit/credit card at the time of ordering. On August 3, financial aid will be available for use when ordering textbooks, merchandise and supplies. 

Effective August 3, shopping inside of the bookstore will be by appointment only. Due to the size of the store and social distancing guidelines, occupancy in the store is limited. No general browsing or walking around the store will be allowed at this time. Book your appointment here.

Orders placed online may be picked up curbside at either the East or West Campus. When placing the order, please make your selection as to which site you will pick up the order. The curbside pickup on the East Campus will be at the turnabout on the second level of the Student Center. Curbside pickup on the West Campus will be in front of the Student Center. The bookstore on the West Campus has been relocated to inside the Student Center in front of Rams Hideaway.

Should exchanges or returns be necessary, students may schedule an appointment through the bookstore system to arrange a time to conduct those transactions. Standard return policies and procedures will apply.
