FALL 2020 Re-Open Plans

At the UIC Bookstores and Tech Center are proud to be the official bookstores for the UIC community. Because we are own and operated by The University of Illinois at Chicago, your dollars stay on campus to further the work of our nationally recognized institution. As a vital resource of the university, we committed to serve and support faculty, staff, and students in any way that we can. In response to the Corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak, we want to share the actions we are taking to ensure the safety of all.
In compliance with the UIC guidelines requirements, MASK OR FACE COVERING are REQUIRED TO ENTER ALL BOOKSTORE LOCATIONS.

The UIC Bookstore and Tech Center will open on August 17. Store hours from 8/17 – 9/4 will be Monday through Friday 9 am – 5 pm, Saturday 8/22 from 10-2 pm.

Curbside pickup will be available Monday through Friday from 10-4 pm.

After 9/4 the store will be open Monday through Friday 10-4 (10-2 for curbside pickup).

The UIC Medical Bookstore will open on 8/10. Store hours will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10-4 (10-2 for curbside pickup).

As we work closely with university officials, we understand the seriousness of the situation, and customers should regularly check our website (uicbookstore.org) for updates and updated store hours.

Sanitation is a high priority, and we are augmenting our normal cleaning procedures by the increasing frequency with which we clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces and high traffic areas. Hand sanitizers are available throughout the stores. We have also educated all team members on best practices recommended by the CDC. We will also be limiting the number of customers who can be in the store at one time to reduce contact and maintain social distancing.

We are encouraging students to shop online to help limit traffic in-store when possible. Course materials are all available online, as are the majority of our other products, contact-less curbside pickup is available M-F.

With many classes offered online, the stores are working on converting as many course materials as possible to digital formats. We will, however, carry all the necessary formats to provide you with the books you need. (New, used, course packages, digital, loose-leafed, etc.)

Please see our latest information regarding our Direct Access Program, a platform that provides interactive, adaptive, and affordable digital course materials for UIC students.

As you transition to online classes, our Tech Center staff can assist you in selecting the devices you may need to ensure the rest of the semester goes smoothly for you. We offer a wide selection of products ranging from PCs to Apple. We also sell many other accessories for your computer (cables, headphones, cases, etc.) Should you have, any questions do not hesitate to call or emails us.
