Access our University of Kentucky Bookstore Transition Case Study 


As we continue to reinvent retail for today's landscape, it is time to begin conceptualizing what the college store should look like in 2021.


When the University of Kentucky launched a campus renewal project in 2015, it turned to Barnes & Noble College for a public-private strategic partnership that would substantially upgrade UK’s retail options.


The result: A wildly popular 30,000-foot, two-story collegiate retail experience anchoring the renovated Gatton Student Center – what the president calls “the living room of campus.”
