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

Please come to the SRC Welcome Point with your tickets between 10am and 3pm; you must know which of your books have sold and present us with the corresponding receipts. The receipt IDs will be in the email you receive to say your books have sold.

Or email to arrange a bank transfer.

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.
