UC Merced's University Store, operated by Follett, does more than distribute textbooks. It's also your main source for Bobcat apparel and a convenient place to pick up school supplies or snacks.

The store offers an array of books, course materials, computers, apparel and food.

Books and Class Materials:

The University Store brings a modern touch to the tradition of high-quality bookstore service with online ordering. New or used textbooks can be purchased through the University Store website. You can shop from the comfort of your own home — or anywhere with internet access. Books will be delivered to campus, bundled together by our staff and marked with your name and ID for pick up in the Textbook Annex. At the end of the semester, the bookstore buys back used textbooks for cash to you at the best possible price. With academic pricing, there is no need to shop anywhere else.
