Due to the current health crisis and following the University’s guidance to implement limited operations, the UNM Bookstore on main campus will be closed March 18-20 and will reopen with reduced hours on March 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Additionally, the UNM Medical Legal Bookstore on north campus is closed until further notice.
Limited operations for the UNM Bookstores will consist of reducing store hours, limiting the amount of staff who are physically at the stores, and having eligible staff work from home, while continuing to process and deliver online web orders such as course materials, and departmental requisitions to our customers and campus community.
During reduced hours all bookstore departments will be open. Course materials for 2nd 8 week courses, which are set to begin March 23, will be available for purchase in the textbooks department on the second floor. The Bookstore TechDen will also be open during this time as new class or work arrangements may require unforeseen technology needs. The UNM Bookstore is an Apple certified reseller and carry top-brand computers and tablets and accessories from Microsoft, Dell and HP.
The Bookstore is taking various measures to ensure that students and faculty who visit the store during reduced hours may do so confidently. In this spirit, the UNM Bookstore has set forth the following guidelines and recommendations:
- Bring your Lobo ID for all purchases and in-store pickup orders as UNM ID holders will be allowed into the store due to the current environment.
- In-store pickups will be made through a window in the store lobby not on the store’s second floor as previously conducted.
- Keep a safe distance from others when shopping or standing in line
Alternatively, the UNM Bookstore encourages you to order course materials and merchandise online at bookstore.unm.edu when possible and have it delivered to your residence. Online orders are being processed daily and shipping continues as usual.
The departmental requisitions department on main campus plans to continue to operate and deliver orders on a daily basis. Because our Medical Legal Bookstore will be closed until further notice, all orders must be directed to the main campus Bookstore.
The UNM Bookstore thanks you for your support during these difficult times. And thank you for your flexibility as the UNM Bookstore strives to support the University’s academic missions to the best of its ability.
All dates and times are subject to change in accordance with University and government directives. Please check our website, bookstore.unm.edu or follow on social media for store hour and service updates.
