Auburn University is a major public university based in Auburn, Alabama. The school has more than 25,000 students and is one of the largest schools in the state. Also known as AU, Auburn’s mascot is the Tiger. Academic programs are highly regarded and a top priority at the school. Because of this, textbooks are also very important. The following is some information on where Auburn students can buy their textbooks:

The Auburn University Bookstore is the official bookstore at the school. Simply log on to the store’s website to enter your class schedule and you will be presented with a  list of all the course materials you need. You can order books online or buy them in the store depending on how you wish to get them. A large supply of Auburn Tigers gear is also in stock at this store.

J&M Bookstore is another option for buying textbooks if you’re enrolled in classes at Auburn. The store is conveniently situated at 115 South College Street. Established in 1953, the store has a long-standing family tradition in the Auburn community. Its knowledgeable employees are longtime members of the J&M Bookstore community and know exactly what students need when they come in. The store sells Tigers clothing and gifts as well.

Big Blue Bookstore at 1655 South College Street is a locally owned and operated independent bookstore. It is located right down the street from the Auburn campus. The store strives to have the lowest prices on all of its new and used textbooks along with a wide array of Tigers gear for the whole family. This store is all about supporting the Tigers, so if you’re an Auburn student, you will feel right at home here. There are also plenty of specials and discounts available on items throughout the year, especially on used books and select apparel items.

A very unique and fun bookstore, Shug’s College Bookstore, is in Gentilly Station at 960 Wire Road. This store serves Auburn students as well as those at other local colleges. The store has a pet dog named Shug, who apparently likes to befriend the store’s customers. The store is managed by Auburn graduates, so students will know upfront that they are dealing with people who understand their needs.

Anders Bookstore is also a good source for your textbooks in addition to school supplies and other educational items. The company has a location in Auburn at 212 West Magnolia Avenue. The store is open seven days a week for the convenience of students who always have busy schedules. Rental textbooks are an option here.
