Students can also access a range of other services including internet access, printing, photocopying and scanning.

Bookshop

Our bookshops stock the textbooks and stationery you'll need for many courses across our campuses.  

All textbooks must be paid in full at the time of purchase. Refunds are only given if the book is in the same condition as it was when sold, and if it is still a current edition.

The Bookshop doesn’t buy or sell any secondhand books, but students can check campus notice boards for any secondhand book sales.
