Students are responsible for buying their own textbooks. The cost of books can vary widely from subject to subject.

See the University Book Shop (UBS) website for specific textbook information.

Textbooks are often already student discounted, and you can get a 10% discount with your student ID when purchasing other books through UBS. If buying online, make sure you note your student ID in the "Shipping Instructions".

All textbooks can be purchased at the On Campus store in the OUSA Archway. A selection of second-hand books can also be bought at the beginning of the academic year.  Keep an eye out for details around campus before first semester starts.
