Howard University Turns to Barnes & Noble for Bookstore Management

Howard University, the historically Black educational institution in Washington, D.C., is turning over the operation of its campus bookstore to Barnes & Noble Inc. The Howard University Bookstore will close on March 29 and reopen on April 6 as Barnes & Noble at Howard University. The store will undergo extensive renovations this summer.

Students will benefit by an expanded product line in both books and other amenities. A new website with e-commerce capabilities will be unveiled and Barnes & Noble will introduce a textbook rental program to lower costs for students.

“This partnership will improve our offerings and provide students, staff and faculty with more options to support teaching and learning,” said Howard University interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick. “Additionally, the renovated space will further enhance our service to the campus and the community at large.”

Barnes & Noble operates more than 700 college bookstores nationwide.
