My experience at University Bookstore is a bit different then most. I am a parent of a college aged freshman who goes to Logan and I go to school at SIUC. I spend a lot of money on books from both colleges but I feel its worth it in the long run. This is the most convenient place to buy books and they do have the nicest staff in town. They go above and beyond to help you out. The apparel section is bar none the best quality in Carbondale. I agree that textbooks are pricey but they are pricey at every store. If you did a price comparison between UB, 710 and Saluki you would know that it's actually more expensive to buy off campus. Also a portion of your purchase goes back into the university. I would rather shop somewhere that benefits the university community.

Located inside the Student Center it's very convenient. the books are expensive but its the same everywhere in town. They do have the best SIU apparel. Very high end products, Under Armour, Champion, Jansport. If you want a product that will last buy from here, if you want your t-shirt to shrivel up and die after you wash it the first time, shop at 710. They do have the best customer service in town.

A little expensive but also very convinient. The bookstore is located in the student center, by many of the other ammanities in campus, including restaurants. It is also located at the very heart of the campus.

This is a good place to pick up a textbook during a break, but its large size and selection result in a little bit higher prices. Best SIU apparal in town.

As the other people have recommended that this book store is very expensive to buy text books. Actually all bookstores in carbondale average the same prices. the bad thing is if their is a new edition of the book which the instructor is going to use then your books go right into the dumpster or donate it to the library.

University bookstore is located in side the student center and is expensive in teh sense that even used books are sold for 75% of the original price. So basically you do not save much and this makes the books to be very expensive.

PROS: On campus
CONS: Very costly
