UT Tyler Enhances Student Services with University Barnes and Noble Bookstore
August 28, 2009
Approved signage for UT Tyler Barnes and Noble.
Effective Sept. 1, UT Tyler has enhanced student services with the future opening of a Barnes and Noble bookstore on campus, Gregg Lassen, UT Tyler vice president for business affairs, announced.
“We’re delighted to bring the Barnes and Nobles bookstore brand to UT Tyler,” Lassen said. “It will be a nice cross between a traditional Barnes and Noble and a campus bookstore. The transition might be a little bit challenging, so we would like to ask for people’s forgiveness and patience as we make the transition.”
The new location of the UT Tyler Barnes and Noble will be the current University Center, which will reopen next year. Offerings will include a general reading and reference area, school supplies, textbooks as well as university apparel in the Patriot Shop.
Until the UC renovation work is complete, the bookstore will remain open in its temporary location at the UT Tyler Physical Education Building (UPDATE: It will close Monday, Aug. 31 and Tuesday, Sept. 1 for inventory and reopen Wednesday, Sept. 2).
New hours will be announced at a later date.
