Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit https://upei.bookware3000.ca/Course/campus to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact bookstore@upei.ca for any questions.
