Resources and Services
Location: Lower Level, Dal SUB
The Dal Bookstore is owned and operated by Dalhousie University. With three physical locations on campus — the main store in the Student Union Building on the Studley Campus; the Administration Building on the Sexton Campus, and Jenkins Hall* on the Agricultural Campus — and a convenient online store, the Dal Bookstore proudly serves the academic and school-spirit needs of students, staff, faculty and alumni. (Please note that the King’s Co-op Bookstore is also available for service to the King’s Community).
The Dal Bookstore offers textbooks in new, used, and digital formats. After you’re done with them, you can sell your used textbook back at up to 50% of the original price if the same textbook is being used again the following semester. Book buybacks are held at the end of every fall and winter semester. Learn more about the book buyback program on our website bookstore.dal.ca.
In addition to course materials, the Dal Bookstore also carries a wide selection of stationery, clothing, gift ware, graduation rings and frames and other items. Our clothing can be customized for societies, sports teams and any other groups for a uniquely Dalhousie look. Consider the Bookstore as your go-to hub for Tiger and Ram-inspired gear!
In addition to textbooks and course supplies, the Dal Bookstore carries a large and convenient collection of items for apartments and residence dorm rooms, including bedding, towels, décor items, and even a selection of appliances. Anything you purchase online can be delivered or picked up in store. And if you live in residence, most anything you order online over the summer as part of our popular Books in Res program can be packaged and delivered to your residence for when you move in.
When you pay for items at the Bookstore with your DalCard, 5% of the purchase price is put back on your account and applied toward future purchases.
