Terrible service, terrible management, overall terrible store. Prices are horrendous and they once wouldn't allow me to return an unopened (as in still shrink-wrapped) product because they said I didn't purchase it there. This was despite me having a receipt from just ~24 hours prior AND THERE BEING A STICKER OF THEIRS ON THE PRODUCT. Absolute morons. I would avoid them like the plague, don't let their "small business" angle fool you, these people are crooks. You are far better off going online, or to a competitor if you must purchase something locally.

Every time I shop here, it amazes me how it is still in business! Their selections are limited and their customer service is dreadful! Someone needs to remind them that if it were not for the students that they treat so rudely, they would not have jobs. We just bought a very expensive book, but the access code for McGraw Hill connect is wrong. When we tried to exchange it, they refused. We need to wait for their rep to get back to them regardless of the fact that we need the code for class. And instead of taking down our contact information, it is up to us to follow up with them!!! This is ridiculous. I will never suffer through shopping here again. I will go through Folletts or order online. I can't believe that Joe calls himself a manager! I can't imagine managing a business this way especially when there are so many alternatives!

While the bookstore at Purdue West generally has a better selection, University Bookstore is nearer to most of campus, and if you're in a pinch, that can make all the difference.

While I was a student at Purdue, I bought all of my books and supplies at the University Book Store. It was small enough that you could find what you needed without being overwhelmed. The staff was always well trained and helpful.

This bookstore has a decent number of used books that are generally in fairly good condition. The books are not a fantastic price, and you might be able to do better online, but they are convenient and pretty well stocked.

This place has fair prices on textbooks. Also, unlike most other book stores, its other items (pens, notebooks, binders, etc) come at a fair price too. It is still higher than staples or office max, but you pay a little extra for the convience of its location.
