Blackwell’s Bookshop advanced information

 posted by | 26/04/2017

blACKWELL-300x96Blackwell’s Bookshop will be returning to the ground floor of the Library the week commencing Monday 18th September 2017. In preparation for that, please see below various offers and additional services they can offer you and your students. 

Student price match guarantee

The Student Price Match Guarantee will be continuing for the next academic year.  To make Blackwell’s the most cost effective place for students to buy course books, all titles are price matched against other retailers including Amazon. If a student finds a title cheaper at another retailer they simply need to show this price in the shop and the lower price will be charged.

10% discount for University staff

All University staff are entitled to 10% discount in the book shop on full priced items.   Just show your staff ID card in the shop.  This cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or SPMG.

Reading lists

If there is a particular book which is a core title for the new semester and you wish to ensure it is in stock at the bookshop, please e-mail Katie Chapman, the Bookshop Manager at with the following details:

  1. Title, Author, ISBN
  2. Module name and number
  3. Year of Study
  4. Estimated student numbers


Book bundles

Where more than one book is recommended as a compulsory book for a course, Blackwell’s may be able to put together a book bundle, which would then be further discounted for students, and offer a more convenient way for students to purchase all of their required texts. Bundles are dependent on student numbers and the titles included, so please contact Katie Chapman directly if you wish to discuss a bundle for your course.

E-book multi-buy

E-book multi-buy offers students a flexible approach to studying with print or eBooks. Students purchasing the printed textbook have a choice to add the e-book for just a few pounds extra. Multi-buy allows students to use their books at home, then load the eBook onto a tablet or laptop to conveniently take it to and from lectures.  E-book multi-buy is only available on selected books, so again, please contact Katie Chapman directly if you would like your course book included.

Blackwell’s are able to supply e-flyers for core books which can be sent out as pre-arrival communication, helping students prepare for their course. Alternatively these can be shown during lectures or sent out when students arrive at University. Flyers are available to give out to departments about the shop and price match offer.
