Baylor University is a private Christian university located in Waco, Texas. Established in 1845, the school is the oldest university in the large state of Texas and is one of the oldest schools west of the Mississippi River. It has a student population of about 15,000, the overwhelming majority of which are undergraduates. The Waco community has a nice variety of bookstores and several places for students to buy textbooks. The following is some information about those stores.

The official campus bookstore is the Baylor University Bookstore. It’s at 1201 South Fifth Street. Here you will find anything and everything under the sun that students could possible desire. From a huge selection of textbooks listed on the store website by course, to all kinds of Baylor Bears apparel – even socks – the University Bookstore will provide personalized service to meet your needs. There is also a special section dedicated to health and science books, which are two popular majors at Baylor. It offers computer hardware and software to make sure that all students have their technical issues in order before the start of the semester.

UBS Bookstore is an off-campus bookstore serving the Baylor University community. Located at 500 Bagby Avenue conveniently near campus, the store has an extensive inventory of new and used textbooks for Baylor students. You can also access the store’s website and easily find the buyback price for specific books so you’ll know how much cash you will receive when you visit the store and sell back any books you no longer need. The store encourages this practice because it increases the number of used and cheaper textbooks for all students. Want to find the latest Baylor Bears apparel? You can also do that at the UBS Bookstore, which stocks a ton of clothing and game-day accessories.

Off Campus Book Store is another option for students to go to buy new and used books. This store is at 1920 Park Lake Drive in Waco. It is a nice alternative for students to go because it is off-campus and can provide less expensive books.

Highlander Student Book Store is also a supplier of student textbooks in Waco. This store is located at 1845 Lake Shore Drive, Suite F. The phone number is 254-756-2114. Call ahead to see if they have your textbooks in stock, and you might be able to land a sweet deal on textbooks before going to other stores.

If you have some books that you’re looking to unload and don’t have the money to spend on pricey textbooks, you might want to check out Golden’s Book Exchange. This family-owned store, at 3112 Franklin Avenue, has thousands of books for every interest and could very well have the used textbooks that you need as a student.
