NYU Bookstore and Textbook Info


If you can believe it, Session I of Summer in NYC starts in just six weeks! Although we know it’s a busy time of year, don’t forget to start preparing for classes! One way to do this is to purchase your textbooks.

The NYU Bookstore website allows you to search for your textbooks by either entering your student information or your course information. New and used books are available through the bookstore, and many students also choose to purchase books through Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. The bookstore’s website features a brand new price comparison feature, which ensures that you get your textbooks at the best price possible!

If your search comes up empty, don’t fear! Some professors do not post their textbooks on the website, and will instead distribute a book list or syllabus on the first day of class. If you’re eager to learn more about your class before the start of the summer and there’s no syllabus posted online, feel free to email the course instructor to request a copy. This will help you make sure it’s the right course for you, and allow you to start prepping ahead of time!

Stop by the bookstore to pick up your books, check out the computer store (which offers discounted student prices on technology), and maybe even pick up some gifts. Check back this Thursday for information on academic resources available to you as an NYU student this summer!
