2017 News Bobcat Depot Logo
October 09, 2017 : OUC Bookstore to Close


As announced in an October 2 campus email, Bobcat Depot bookstores on four Ohio University regional campuses will permanently close within the 2017 fall semester. The Regional Campus Bobcat Depot stores are operated by Ohio University auxiliaries in partnership with the Regional Campuses.

Despite a number of restructurings at the regional campus venues, it was decided the best course of action is to close the regional bookstores. The closings are due to significant market changes and a challenging financial environment across Ohio University.

Effective immediately, the Ohio University Chillicothe campus bookstore located in the basement of Bennett Hall will operate during the following hours until the official closing date is announced in November:


Monday: 9am-2pm
Tuesday: 11am-5pm
Wednesday: 9am-2pm
Thursday: 11am-5pm
Friday: Closed  


Campus administrators are working diligently to put together alternative means of accessing materials and books.  Information including suggested websites or resources for securing class materials will be available on the OUC website prior to spring semester.  Plans to meet the demands of our College Credit Plus students are being discussed and will be available for students, administrators, and high school guidance counselors at a later time.  For those customers who rented textbooks from the Bobcat Depot, a process to return textbooks is being determined and will be available by the end of the semester.  Information regarding these and other bookstore arrangements will be available on the OUC website as it becomes available.  Students who need more immediate assistance can contact the Bookstore during the current operating hours or visit the Hilltopper Advising Center; College Credit Plus students should contact their assigned advisor, and veterans should contact the Veteran Services Office in Bennett Hall.
