You have the responsibility of purchasing textbooks and it is important you know what text books you require as they are an important resource for your study. Your course specification for each course lists the textbooks required for each course.
You are able to be purchase textbooks from the USQ Bookshop at the following locations:
- Toowoomba campus Level 1, R Block
- Fraser Coast campus Library Building
- Springfield campus D111 (north western end of the Auditorium)
- Ipswich campus Building I, Room 108
The USQ Bookshop online textbook search facility contains the latest information (including price and availability) on the textbooks for each course. Operating hours and conditions of pick-up for each campus bookshop are also outlined on the USQ Bookshop website.
Students also occasionally advertise books for sale on course discussion groups and the USQ general discussion group. You can access course discussion groups from your USQStudyDesk.
If you are an on-campus student, used textbooks are often advertised on notice boards across the campus.
