Located in the heart of campus, the UofSC Barnes and Noble in Russell House has won Best Bookstore 2022!

Don’t be fooled by the category name, the store has more than just books — it’s a one-stop-shop for all students’ needs. It carries everything from school supplies and textbooks to snacks and UofSC apparel. Whether you’re looking for a t-shirt, a Carolina Grandpa hat or a Gamecock car magnet, the bookstore has all the high end Under Amour apparel.

Perhaps the most convenient past of the store is the convenient course materials locator. Students can type their classes into the UofSC Barnes and Noble website and all required course and professor-specific textbooks are listed and ready to order to be picked up in store on campus.

With such variety and convenience, the UofSC Barnes and Noble bookstore is hard to beat... which may be why its won Best Bookstore for the last seven years!
