Bookshop Opening Times – Term Time Hours

Opening hours are:

Monday – Friday: 10:30am – 2.30pm

You can buy, sell and uplift books. Please e-mail us in advance to do this. You will be able to collect funds for sold books via the Welcome Point.


We can reserve books for a limited time during the months of October – August when the bookshop is not busy.

Please note that reservation requests are not available during the month of September.

People wishing to sell books

Please email the bookshop at: with a list of the books you wish to sell including the title, year of publication and edition number, one of the staff will reply within a few days to let you know if they are able to take all your titles. This will save you carrying books into us, which you may need to take back. When you have received a response, please bring your books to the bookshop.

People wishing to buy books

You can come to the bookshop during the opening times listed above and check our shelves for your course books and other books of interest.  Books are sold on a first come, first served basis during September and October but outside of this very busy period you may reserve books. Please check our database at  and then email us with the details of what you wish to reserve. We can often hold books for you for three days.

For anyone wishing to collect funds

There are six weeks from early September to mid-October when we do not pay out for sold books as the service is extremely busy.

From mid October, we will email you when you book has sold and you can come to the Welcome Point between 10am and 3.30pm with your receipts or photographic ID plus the email which includes the receipt numbers and we will pay you in person. You must know which of your books have sold and hand us the corresponding receipts or have the correct email and ID. If you wish to be paid by bank transfer or via Paypal, please follow the instructions in the email.

You can email us at with any queries and we will endeavour to reply within 3 working days.

To Uplift Books

Please email us at to let us know which of your books you wish to uplift. Please allow us a few days to find your book and send you an email to let you know we have found it BEFORE you come to collect it.
