Bobcat Bookstore Options





The Bobcat Depot bookstores on four Ohio University regional campuses were permanently closed during 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, it was decided the best course of action was to close the regional bookstores due to significant market changes and a challenging financial environment across the Ohio University system.
