Southern Utah University, also known as SUU, is a public university located in Cedar City, Utah. The school was originally established in 1897 and now has an annual enrollment of about 8,000 students. The athletic teams at Southern Utah are called the Thunderbirds. Students who attend the university have a few options on where to buy the textbooks for their classes. These bookstores are the best places to look both on campus and around the local area:

The Southern Utah University Bookstore is the primary textbook outlet for students and staff at SUU. It is situated in the center of campus at 351 West University Boulevard. This store carries all of the required and recommended textbooks and course materials. Students have several choices on how to acquire their books. There is the traditional way of buying books either new or used with the used books prices at very reasonable rates. Textbooks are also available for rent in many cases, and this is considered the best way to save money on your books. The store also sells technology and electronics items at discounted prices, including Apple computers and software. If you are looking to purchase a new laptop, you should definitely check out this store because of how much you’ll be able to save on one as a student. Plus there is a wide selection of general books, athletic team apparel, and gift items. When you shop here, you can expect great service and fair prices.

Mountain West Books is one of the only bookstores in the area other than the campus bookstore that carries some textbooks. Mountain West Books is located at 111 South Main Street and is fairly close to the SUU campus. The store carries a relatively small collection of mostly used college textbooks. But the staff here will work with you and can order certain textbooks at lower prices. You will also find a nice selection of general books, novels, and more here. For additional information on the store, call 438-586-3828.
