Changes to Bookstore Charges


With the recently completed transition of the University Bookstore’s partnership with Barnes & Noble College (BNC), a policy change has been made that will affect many on our UR team. Specifically, placing orders via phone using a FOAPAL number.

Beginning this month (March 2022) purchases made at the University Bookstore must be made onsite and charged at the time of purchase using one of the options listed below. The University Bookstore will no longer accept a FOAPAL number provided verbally in person, over the phone, or by any other method for purchases.

The accepted payment methods for University Bookstore purchases (additional detail on these options can be found here):

  • University Procard
  • An active Irish1card (ID card) – you must have charging privileges on your card
  • Departmental Card

If you have any questions about any of these options, or need assistance in getting access for one of these options, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to assist in any way.

Additionally, the department discount has been adjusted to 20% (from the previous 30%). Please keep this in mind when making purchases.
