The university book store is one of my favorite seattle books stores. Not only do they have good prices and wide selection of textbooks, their selection of other books is hugely extensive. It's a really nice, relaxing atmosphere (except during the beginning and end of UW quarters). The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also, they have really good special events. The husky shop is pretty cool and the people in the media center are helpful. Overall, it's a really great bookstore.

Pros: Great selection, great staff

Cons: parking is a little annoying

This store has great books, UW and WSU clothing and paraphernalia, coffee, and great visiting authors and lectures. This bookstore isn't just college textbooks like many folks think.

PROS: Authors, Logo Wear
CONS: None that I can think of!

They have everything...a new coffeeshop, books, supplies, cards, gifts, even a tiny Clinique counter. There are tons of things to browse in this store. It's amazing what they have. The cutest nicknacks. The only drawback is that everything is a bit pricey. Even the books. They do have coupons floating out there though, and they do have anniversary sales in the summer. Don't go during the first days of class....it is crazy down there!! Free parking with validated sticker! Let's you park there for 1.5 hours I believe. Used to be 2 hours, but they cut it down.

PROS: Fun place to hang out, and shop!
CONS: A little pricey, busy on first days of school.

Excellent store. Our family scatters as soon as we get inside the door: I'm a teacher and head for the wonderful children's book section. The displays are bright and interesting and I could browse in here for hours on end. Unfortunately, parking is validated only with a purchase and only for up to an hour. So, I have to hurry out a little quicker than in years past.

The University Bookstore, located on the main drag on the Ave, has a nice selection of art supplies, gifts, UW merchandise, and, of course, books. Ive always headed here to find high quality books on various subjects that would normally need to be special ordered by other mainstream chain bookstores. Since theyre not a chain, they will also often have books in stock that have sold out elsewhere in the city. They carry books by professors at UW, many of whom are experts in their fields. You can usually find a nice gift here for the academic-type in your family.

Anything you want is here and they have really good hours. For instance, I needed some photography supplies at 8pm on a Sunday. You can't get that anywhere, but here. Electronics, books, clothes, art supplies, all kinds of cool stuff. It's conveniently located right on University AVE. It also has some pretty competitive prices.

The University Book Store is the best shopping experience in the U-District. You can find everything from text books to art supplies to gifts and clothing. Students get an annual percentage returned on all items purchased. You'll find a large selection of clothing and gifts geared toward fans of the University of Washington. You'll also find a good selection of fiction and non-fiction books. The entire basement level is reserved for text books and supplies. Parking can be a problem. The bookstore has a small lot that is free with validation. Otherwise, you might try to fight for on-street parking in the area.

PROS: Find everything. College atmosphere
CONS: Not a lot of parking

you can find just about any book on any subject at the UW bookstore and if they don't have it, they'll order it. Youcan also get all kinds of office supplies and art supplies here too.

The Unviversity Book store is not just for books. They have a lot of art supplies but the best thing is author's lectures and signings. Most people don't know this. Also workshops that are very useful. Don't forget the used books too.

The selection of new books is good, plus they also carry a variety of books on sale at all times. The wide assortment of art supplies in the basement are another reason to come, and if you're a student they also of course buy and sell textbooks for college courses. Located in the Seattle University District near the University of Washington campus.

The selection is well "learned" you can find books on some pretty complex subjects covering many fields of knowledge. The staff is courtous and most are students or former students of the UW. This is also a great place to pick up Husky gear for UW fans

The selection is great and there are lots of great second hand college books for people who wish to brush up on past knowledge. Located in the heart of the UW this place is also great people watching. They also offer a lots of other knowledge related items for the hungry brain.

I went with a friend of mine who's a student at UW and I was so impressed by the size of the bookstore and the selection of books available. Even the children's books took up nearly half a floor. The variety and title selection is amazing. They also have a little cafe so you can browse longer sipping a latte. There's also a large gift section complete with greeting cards and wrapping paper. We went at Christmas time and there mounds of Christmas trinkets and decorations as well as novelty gifts.

Parking is free so long as you get it validated, but be aware that their parking lot behind their store is very tiny. They've made agreements with other lots nearby to deal with the overflow of cars.

And of course you can get all your Husky apparel and souvenirs here!

University Bookstore is one of the "Big 3" independent bookstores in Seattle (Elliott Bay and Third Place being the others). University excels with amazing selection (especially of textbooks and in-depth non-fiction section), a great gift shop, and a wonderful art supply section downstairs. They also host some of the most amazing authors as they come through town (Howard Dean was a favorite of mine, but he is just one of many many many people). Unless you live downtown or south of downtown, this is the most easily accessible bookstore around. And hey, there are all those college women (and men) wandering the aisles. New cool coffee shop too!

A UW alum, I am very familiar with the University Bookstore. This is one amazing store. The store carries all kinds of office, school, and art supplies, in addition to textbooks, books, gifts, electronics, computers, and Husky gear. It is the place you know you will find what you are looking for. Sometimes, a little shopping around will get you what you want for cheaper, but for UW students, you will get a 10% refund in October if you turn in all your receipts to the store in June. Look into that,it's a great way to make a little money back.

The University Bookstore is enormous and intimidating. Not only do they have a full-fledged 2-story bookstore, but in the same building in the basement there are used books, an art and office supply store. A coffee cart is handy in the hallway for theperpetually-caffeine-craved Seattle crowd, and the UW gift shop is right next door. Sandwiched between the Ave and the UW itself, the bookstore is in a great location and is definitely a great place to search for books or attend readings--student and citizen alike.

I became familiar with the bookstore as a student at UW but I find myself going back there almost every time I visit Seattle. They certainly have a fine collection of Husky gear, but they also have an amazing selection of books and are willing to order almost any title not in stock. Their music section is great for classical and world music. If you're looking for top forty hits pop across the street to Tower Records.
