Closure of Blackwell’s Bookshop confirmed

It is with regret that the University of Portsmouth and Blackwell’s Bookshop today confirm the closure of the Blackwell’s campus bookshop on Friday 2 March.

Blackwell’s is very grateful for the support the University have provided over the past 15 years.

Blackwell’s and University of Portsmouth continue to discuss a 365 day a year bookselling provision for students based around bookstalls and online and are planning to maintain a presence on campus at the start of the academic year.

  1. OMG!!!!! Cannot believe this! It is has come as such a shock, me and my friends love this place. Spent many of days in here scanning the shelves and getting lost in the pages. Deffo one of my favorite places to “hang out”, well other than the Fajny Sklep supermarket!

    Well i’ll love you and leave you, wish Blackwell’s all the best in the future and hope to see you again one day

    Peace out! 😛


  2. This is so very sad. Really had hoped it woudn’t happen.
