Weber State University, which is located in Ogden, Utah, is a large public university that currently enrolls over 25,000 students. Originally established as a college in 1889, Weber State has several athletic teams that compete in the Big Sky conference. The teams are called the Wildcats, and the official school colors are purple and white. Weber State students have some choices when it comes time to buy textbooks and materials for their classes. The following bookstores are the best places to shop for books to get good deals both on campus and around the Ogden area:

The official campus bookstore at Weber State is called the WSU Bookstore. It is housed in the heart of campus at 2103 University Circle. This bookstore offers all the textbooks and materials you will need to succeed in your classes. Because the staff at this store works directly with Weber State faculty, you can be assured your purchases are exactly what you need for each of your classes in the upcoming semester. You can buy and rent textbooks here, including a nice variety of used textbooks at reduced prices. The rental option is great because of how much money you can save. It also gives you a reason to get rid of your books when classes are over so that they aren’t piling up in your closet. The WSU Bookstore is fully stocked with Wildcats gear, discounted technology items, art supplies, and other school supplies like backpacks and binders. The store also holds various contests throughout the year in which you can win some great prizes.

Wildcat Textbooks is an independent off-campus bookseller that has served the Weber State community since 2004. Located at 4300 South Harrison Boulevard, #1, the staff at this bookstore is fully committed to offering the best prices on textbooks and other college supplies. When you walk in with your book list, a friendly staff member will assist you in providing you with all the possible options on how to get your books. This may include buying them used or renting them. The store knows all about what college students like, and one example of this is a texting promotion where you can text a word to a number and get a discount on your purchase or more money on your buybacks. Check the website for more details.

Beat The Bookstore at 4305 Harrison Boulevard in downtown Ogden has some of the cheapest prices on textbooks. The name of this store says it all. The staff is committed to “beating” the prices of other bookstores by selling discounted used books at prices that college students won’t be able to pass up. To find out if your books are in stock here or to reserve them before you pick them up, call Beat The Bookstore at 801-475-5628.
