University Book Store hours set in Old Capitol Mall

Students and the campus community can get textbooks in the University Book Store at the Old Capitol Mall south of the Pentacrest from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Textbook buyers should shop early (before 10 a.m.) or late (after 4 p.m.) to avoid lines, says Peggy Leichty, marketing manager for University Book Store. Textbooks can also be ordered online at

The University Book Store has a limited selection of Hawkeye apparel and gifts on the second floor of the Old Capitol Mall, but a complete line of Hawkeye items should be available in mid-September.

The University Book Store and Apple Campus Store relocated from the Iowa Memorial Union to the first floor of the Old Capitol Mall in June because of flooding on the UI campus.
