The Lewis & Clark Bookstore

Special Message Regarding Fall 2020 Textbook Ordering:

At this time, the Bookstore needs students to place their textbook and school supply orders online. If you live in the Portland area, please choose to have your orders shipped to you. If you are traveling to Portland, please choose in-store pick up. We will communicate with you via Campus Living or New Student Orientation regarding your pick up window.

We must reduce foot traffic in the Bookstore. At this time, with staffing levels higher than usual for RUSH, we will only allow 10 customers into the store at one time. Please reserve this time and space for students with accessibility needs or those who may need to exchange textbooks due to schedule changes.

Students can easily find their textbook lists via WebAdvisor or the Bookstore Website

The bookstore hosts book-warmings throughout the semester, with a warm place to sit by our fireplace and hear our very own professors read, talk, and answer questions about their published works.


One of our main functions is to provide the course materials needed for your classes. Students have the option to rent many titles required for their classes, and we source as many used copies as we can to help students keep the costs down. Renting used books is a popular option, saving students up to 90% versus buying the book new. Find your required course materials here. 

School Spirit:

Outside of textbooks, we proudly serve the Lewis & Clark community at large. From car accessories for the alum to rain jackets to keep you dry - we have it at the Bookstore! Show your school support with a LC tee or keep cozy in a hoodie and some sweatpants with matching Pio socks.

General Merchandise:

Students can also obtain other daily life essentials such as food and drink, health and beauty supplies, phone chargers, and school supplies. Other items we carry include an ever-growing selection of art supplies, photography essentials, backpacks, greeting cards, gift wrap, personal care items, and much more.
