If you are in need of books for your classes this is the best place to buy them as they have a great buy back price. The books are priced comparable to other textbook stores, but you can also buy so much more here. They also sell anything and everything Longhorn. They sell shirts, cups, bags, and more. They also sell Graduation announcements at a reasonable and affordable price.

The Co-Op just moved into a larger building (taking over the previous space of Barnes and Nobles). While the extra space was definitely needed, it's the same crummy business model crammed into a bigger package.

The basement still contains books, but women's clothing has been moved up to the second floor, and art supplies to the third floor. As usual, as soon as you walk in you'll feel like you're drowing in a sea of orange, and it's not so untrue when you realize the significant markup you pay on nearly every item sold.

One "nice" thing about the Co-Op is that they offer a rebate system where 10% of your purchases are refunded to you in the form of store credit. My last semester at the University was light, so I had a mere $13 credit. Let me say that $13 will buy you a couple shotglasses, or possibly a shotglass and a bottle opener, but not much else.

Unfortunately, due to their proximity to campus, and their partnership with UT, it's unlikely the Co-Op will ever have any incentive to bring prices down. Only shop there as a last resort, and only for stuff you can't find cheaper elsewhere.

If you are a loyal University of Texas fan, you definitely want to come here. There are full of items with school logo like T-shirt, caps, sweashirt. They sell plates, carpets, toys with school logo, too! The price is okay. You can also buy textbook here. They do provide textbook buyback service.

The Riverside ACC Campus University Co-Op bookstore had all of the books I needed in stock. They sold the basic supplies I needed for a decent price too. It was convenient to get everything in one place, and convenient to pick up extra supplies between classes. The students who worked there were very knowledgeable in what they had and where it was stocked.

If you are a fan of Longhorn, you will definitely love this place. The store has good lightings and has everything well organized. You can find every apparal and accessorieswith longhorn marks. They have a very good sense of designing things, so they make the longhorn look so stylish. Also, they sell whatever you will need for school, since they are a related store of the University of Texas. So, you can find textbooks and school supplies there. By the way, if you don't have much money but still want to own some longhorns, there is a co-op outlet next door!

In Short
Supplying UT students with new and used textbooks, school supplies and validated parking for more years than anybody can remember is the University Co-op. Head down the stairs to the textbook superstore--bring your class…
