When it comes to textbooks, ECU students have a few options to choose from as far as where to buy their books. Here is some information on textbook stores in the area:

Dowdy Student Stores serve the campus community at East Carolina University. One of these stores is devoted to selling textbooks. This store is located right inside the Wright building in the heart of the ECU campus. They sell lots of textbooks and offer lots of options as well. You can buy books new, buy them used, sell them back to the store, and buy digital textbooks for more convenience. They also sell plenty of Pirates gifts, gear, and clothing for sports fans. Discounted software and other technology items are available for purchase. You can also buy books right online and have them shipped to your doorstep.

Art supplies and general school supplies are among the other merchandise at the store, in addition to lots of general titles that span all reading genres. “Piratewear” is also a big seller at the store, which means ECU Pirates gear. Everything from clothing to stuff for your pets and anything in between can be found at UBE.

Textbook Wizards is primarily an online textbook seller, but the company is based in Greenville and offers pickup options there.
