Pono 'Uhane Bookstore

The bookstore is located inside the Kapolei Campus, third floor of the Kapolei Medical Center building.  

Inclusive Access (VitalSource) textbooks:
Most courses at the Hawaii and American Samoa campuses will have digital books available in Blackboard using VitalSource at a reduced cost. 
Access your eTextbook on the first day of the term either in Blackboard or Vitalsource.com.  Use your Wayland email account as your login ID.
Students have up to two weeks from the start of the term to opt out.  Although your account has been charged automatically, VitalSource allows a "try before your buy" for the first 8 days of the course.  You must then determine to keep the VitalSource textbook or opt out and obtain your own textbook. 
Students are responsible to have access to a textbook on the first day of class.  If you decide to opt out, your account will be updated with charges removed sometime after Census date.  Although The Hawaii Bookstore will stop stocking books that are now listed under VitalSource, some copies may be available. Students may also need to create Cengage and Pearson accounts for some etextbooks.
 The Bookstore also  offers other items for purchase such as WBU clothing (polo/T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, lightweight jerseys, etc.), diploma frames, jewelry, coffee cups, and other memorabilia in our bookstore. Ask about student discounts and promotional items.  See the new form-fillable order form for additional items.

Book Buybacks:

  • Due to etextbooks, no buyback schedules will be posted.  
  • Inquire at the Hawaii Campus Bookstore, Kapolei for any questions.

 Prices and Rental availability are subject to change.
