Getting the most out of your bookstore's services
Staff at the Dalhousie University Bookstore want to make buying your textbooks as easy as possible. We have four bookstores located throughout the Halifax campuses, and one at our Agricultural campus in Truro. The main bookstore on the Halifax campus is located in the Student Union Building (SUB) (map) on Studley Campus. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact us.
Order your textbooks online
This service is currently available for Halifax Campus students only.
Our convenient Search by Course feature allows you to search for the textbooks you're looking for and order them online. The search function also includes books from our used-book inventory.
What if my course isn't listed when I search?
This means we have not yet received an order for the book. Check back closer to the beginning of your term.
How are books shelved in the bookstore?
All required and suggested textbooks for academic courses are shelved by course code. The course code is an 8-to-10-character alpha-numeric code that is specific to each course at the university. These codes can be found on your timetable under Student Schedule by Day & Time.
