Gift Wrapping

Buying a gift? Gift wrapping is only $2 per package for all in-store University Book Store purchases. Just select the wrapping paper you want at our gift wrap station in our U District store, and we'll take it from there.

Because of possible shipping delays due to the high, national shipping volume, University Book Store is not currently offering gift wrapping services for online purchases in order to ensure timely delivery.
