First Year Students

Welcome First Year Students! 

Welcome to the Co-op Bookstore-the original student owned, student run bookstore on the University of Guelph campus.  Started in 1913, we have been providing textbooks for students at the best possible prices.

The Co-op Bookstore is the independent bookstore on campus - providing legendary counter service with friendly, helpful staff who will assist you individually with your course needs.

Find us in the basement of Johnston Hall (the building with the clock tower).  We offer a full personalized counter service: simply bring us your course schedule and our staff will get your books. We'll take the time to review your choices: course requirements and options & answer your questions. We stock new, used. e-books, access codes, coursepacks, i clickers...everything that you need for your courses.

Take a look around our website.  You can search for the textbooks you need, order online, check out our textbook buyback, & learn more about the Co-op's student-friendly programs and policies.

Our First Year Student Reservation service is now closed. Don't worry...we've still got you covered. Stop in to see us when you are on campus & we're ready to help you in person!


Our Co-op Guarantee means the right books for class, at the right price - every time.
