The Duck Store (formerly the University of Oregon Bookstore), located just west of the campus, is open daily Monday through Thursday, 7:45 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturday, 10:00 to 6:00 p.m.; and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Special hours apply during term breaks and holidays. Check the website for exceptions.
The Duck Store comprises five departments: books, technology, art and school supplies, sportswear (UO-related apparel and memorabilia), and the Duck Store Café.
The Duck Store was established in 1920 as a cooperative and is now run as a nonprofit organization owned by UO students and members of the faculty and classified staff. Policy is decided by a board of directors composed of eight students, two faculty members, and one classified staff member. The directors are selected in annual elections by the membership.
The Duck Store offers no-charge check cashing for amounts up to $20, ATM machines, postage stamp sales and a mail drop, UPS package service, and fax service. The store also provides the university community with graduation regalia and announcements.
The bookstore offers course book rentals and e-books as well as traditional textbooks. University of Oregon students and members of the faculty and staff receive a discount off the publisher’s list price of new textbooks and at least 32 percent off used books. Students may resell their books at any time. For the best prices and buy-back dates, visit uoduckstore.com/student. Dates are posted on the Duck Store website. Thousands of book award and school supply scholarships have been awarded since 2003. For more information on the awards program, visit the website.
The Duck Store hosts literary events within the store and in the campus community. These events are often free and open to the public. Times, dates, locations, authors, and event summaries may be found at uoduckstore.com/events.
Art and School Supplies
The art and school supplies department in the store basement is Oregon's largest art store south of Portland. As well as housing a wide variety of art and architecture materials, it offers everything you need in school and office supplies. Local artists frequent the Duck Store for its extensive selection of art supplies and the personal service from its knowledgeable staff.
The technology department provides computers, software, and technology solutions for the UO community. Low educational prices on hardware and software are available for UO students, faculty, and staff. The computer department also provides a Kodak instant-print kiosk and fax services.
Duck Store Café
The Duck Store Café gourmet coffee and espresso counter features specialty coffee drinks, food, and snacks. Tips go to local charities.
Sportswear, Gifts, and Cards
The sportswear department carries the latest officially licensed UO sportswear, gifts, and Oregon memorabilia. Profits return to campus and support the discount on course materials, and help other campus units provide benefits for UO students and alumni. Visit the Duck Store main floor for a selection of distinctive gifts, greeting cards, and magazines, or visit the main website.
Knight Law Center
The Duck Store serves the John E. Jaqua Law Library with the Court Café, selling coffee, beverages, and food. Students can pick up law course packets and books and send faxes. Court Café hours may be found on the Duck Store website.

Students using the Rec Center may purchase yoga mats, swimsuits, water bottles, protein bars, and other items needed in a gym environment. Hours may be found on the Duck Store website.
