Text and the city


Going to class isn’t the only thing you will need to do to keep your grades up. Textbooks are a factor.

But finding textbooks aren’t always easy. Here are the stores from which UI professors most often assign textbooks:

University Bookstore

The facility recently moved back to its original location in the IMU ground floor.

Here, students can charge textbooks to their Ubills.

Students can sell or rent new and used books. Additionally, the University Bookstore buys books back from students at the end of the semester. Students can also buy Hawkeye-related items.

Beat the Book Store

Beat the Book Store, located in the Old Capitol Town Center, deals solely with books for UI courses. It sells and rents used and new books, and buys books from students throughout the year.

Prairie Lights

Prairie Lights, 15 S. Dubuque St., is an esteemed bookstore in Iowa City. The store is most often recommended for textbooks with an emphasis on writing, including English and journalism.

Magazines, such as Forbes, often recognize the store for being a top independent bookstore. Many authors have held book readings and signings at the store.

Iowa Book

Iowa Book, 8 S. Clinton St., offers textbooks and recreational reading, in addition to also selling Hawkeye gear.

Students can set up charge accounts to bill their textbooks to their Ubill.
