This fall, Barnes & Noble College will be headed to a school in sunny northern Florida.

Jacksonville University has selected Barnes & Noble College to manage its in-store and online campus store operations. The Jacksonville University campus bookstore has opened for business under the management of Barnes & Noble College.

In addition, Barnes & Noble College opened JAX Outfitters, a new spirit shop located in the university’s Frisch Family Welcome Center. JAX Outfitters will offer t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, gifts and more.

Through the on-campus bookstore, Barnes & Noble College will offer a selection of learning materials, including new, used and digital books, open educational resources (OER) and OER-based digital courseware, a textbook rental program and a price match program. There is also a dedicated page on the Barnes & Noble College e-commerce site for Jacksonville University.

“We are excited to deliver exceptional service to the Jacksonville University campus community,” said Barry Brover, executive VP, Barnes & Noble College. “Our presence across two locations on campus will allow us to serve as an important campus resource, providing even greater value for the university and the students it serves. We look forward to driving success for Jacksonville University students, faculty and alumni.”

“We are pleased to welcome our new partners, Barnes & Noble College, to the Jacksonville University campus,” said Jacksonville University senior VP and CFO Randy Freebourn. “Their expertise and premier customer service will enhance the book-buying experience and expand affordable resources for JU students.”

Barnes & Noble College currently operates more than 770 campus stores nationwide.
