Bookstores & Libraries

There are a number of convenient ways for UCLA Extension students to purchase required books and additional reading (and other) materials for their courses, and to use campus libraries.

Bookstores:
UCLA Store Online
Often the most convenient way to purchase textbooks for UCLA Extension courses is online from the UCLA Store. Access your course on this website via Quick Enroll, then click on Buy this Book. Another option is to go directly to the UCLA Store website , click "Extension Textbooks," then select the desired UCLA Extension (UNEX) term, department, course, and registration number. Payment may be made with American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa.

UCLA Store/Lu Valle Commons (UCLA Campus)
Textbooks for many UCLA Extension courses held on campus are stocked at the UCLA Store/Lu Valle Commons (on the UCLA campus near the School of Law). Reference books and school/computer supplies also are available. For your convenience, extended shopping hours are scheduled during the first week of each quarter. For more information call (310) 825-7238 or email luvalle@asucla.ucla.edu .

UCLA BookZone (UCLA Campus)
The UCLA BookZone on the ground floor of Ackerman Union sells general trade and mass-market paperbacks, bestsellers, technical and academic titles, and reference books—many at discounted prices. Special orders and search services are available. For more information call (310) 206-4041.

UCLA Bookstore Textbook Refund Policy: Full refund on textbooks is given if the books are returned with the sales receipt (online customers should use their packing slip) in their original unmarked condition up to 2 weeks after the course start date, excluding the last week of instruction. After 2 weeks, a refund is given only if the book is returned within 1 business day of purchase. Students who withdraw from a course and receive a refund may return textbooks up to 1 week after the refund date with a UCLA Extension refund receipt, if the book is in original packaging and in unmarked condition. Refunds are made in kind: cash for cash purchases, credit for credit card purchases.

Libraries
UCLA Extension students are welcome to many of the services offered by the UCLA Libraries. For an explanation of the collections and services, visit library.ucla.edu . Printed guides describing the facilities, services, and scheduled hours also are available at any campus library. For circulation privileges, Extension students may purchase a UCLA library card for $20 upon presentation of proof of current enrollment and photo ID at either the Loan Desk in the Young Research Library or Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library (12-077 Center for Health Sciences). The card is valid for the quarter during which the student is enrolled.
