As we work closely with UIC officials, we have taken initiatives to ensure the safety of our customers from the spread of COVID-19.

These include:

  • Additional cleaning protocols
  • All customers are required to wear a mask in the store.
  • Social Distancing (6 feet between customers)

We are encouraging students to shop online ( and pickup in-store or curbside for convenience as well as to limit store traffic.

While many classes will be offered in person, the stores are working to convert as many course materials as possible to digital formats.  We will however carry all necessary formats to provide you with the books you need. (New, used, course packages, digital, loose-leafed, etc.)

Please see our latest information regarding our Direct Access Program, a platform that provides interactive, adaptive, and affordable digital course materials for UIC students.

Our Tech Center staff can assist you in selecting the devices you may need to ensure the rest of the semester goes smoothly for you. We offer a wide selection of products ranging from PCs to Apple. We also sell many other accessories for your computer (cables, headphones, cases, etc.)
