Dowdy Student Stores – bookstores owned and operated by ECU – are located on campus, inside the Wright Building and also at The Brody School of Medicine. You may be interested to know that profits from sales in our stores go toward scholarship contributions and other university programs.
Students purchase used, new and rental textbooks through the Dowdy Student Stores on campus. All of these textbook options are available for advance shopping online through this store website or in-person in our store. E-books and digital content to download full textbooks in electronic formats are available on our website as well.
We are always looking for ways to save you money. Using our early textbook ordering allows you to have your books charged out early gives you a better opportunity to purchase used books. It also gives us the chance to have them boxed up, and ready for you to pick up during move-in or when classes begin. Selling non-rental books back is something else you can do to save.
Students and family members can call us at (252) 328-6731 or toll-free at 1-877-499-TEXT for information or assistance.
