The bookstore is owned and operated by NVIT for the convenience of students and staff. You will find required textbooks, supplies and specialized equipment at the bookstore. There is also a wide selection of clothing, binders, packsacks, briefcases and other specialized items sporting the NVIT logo.
Bookstore hours at the Merritt and Vancouver campuses are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended hours for semester start-up months of September and January will be posted outside the bookstore.
Textbooks are required for most courses and the cost of textbooks varies from program to program. Some NVIT courses require supplementary materials: i.e. lab coat, field engineering sheets, journal, art supplies. Book lists will be posted on the myNVIT portal prior to the semester start.
