The University Book Store is open and ready to serve the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus and the Madison community. We are taking many steps to assure a safe and clean shopping experience, including regular cleaning and disinfecting, plexiglass panels at all checkouts, floor markings to help maintain social distancing, capacity limits, and mask requirements for all employees and customers. For all of your back-to-school needs: textbooks, technology products, and school supplies can be purchased in person or online at uwbookstore.com. Feel free to contact us with questions or concerns. Thank you for supporting the University Book Store!
