The Southwestern College Campus Store is owned and operated by the Southwestern Community College District. Our primary purpose is to provide the essential books, supplies and services to support the educational goals of our students, faculty, staff and the other members of our college community. We are proud that all bookstore proceeds remain a part of the District's assets.
Our main bookstore is at our Chula Vista campus, where we are open year round and carry all books used at SWC classes as well as an extensive selection of school supplies, SWC clothing, art supplies and Bio-Med supplies, reference books and electronics. We also operate bookstores at the college's Higher Education Centers at Otay Mesa, National City and San Ysidro.
We would be happy to hear your comments or suggestions, so please feel free to contact us directly by telephone or e-mail. Our main Bookstore phone number is (619) 482-6416 or click here to send a comment or question.

The Campus Store now buys back used textbooks on a year round basis!
Do you have used books that you no longer need? Could you use some extra cash? No receipt is required to sell back books, but you will need to present your SWC ID.
Up to 50% you bought the book used and will be paid under the following terms:
1. The book must be continued in use for the next semester at SWC (based on faculty orders) and the bookstore has need for stock.
2. No new edition has been announced by the publisher.
3. Book must be in good condition (underlining & highlighting permissible, no water/coffee damage).
We do not buy back lab manuals, perforated books, custom published books, workbooks or books with computer disks. Also, we cannot guarantee the buyback of any book at any time and are unable to quote buyback prices over the phone. It is also our policy not to buy multiple copies of titles from individuals.
If your book does not meet our buyback criteria, we are often able to purchase titles on behalf of our nation-wide used book wholesaler, which resells them to other college and universities throughout the country. Price is set by the wholesaler and is based on national supply and demand.
To receive the best price, books should be sold at finals period, during the last two weeks of each semester!
