Just in time for football season, Barnes & Noble at UH has launched a new merchandise-only site where Cougar fans can get all the gear they need to display their school pride.

The website,, went live on Thursday, Sept. 1 and differs from the store’s other site that includes information on textbooks, faculty resources and other academic-related information.

“The purpose of is to give UH supporters a quick and easy way to buy University apparel, accessories, keepsakes and more,” said Felix Robinson, general manager of the store. “We’ve received feedback in the past from fans looking for a merchandise-only shopping option, so we’re hoping they enjoy this new resource.”

It’s important to note that individuals such as faculty, staff and alumni who receive a discount at the on-campus Barnes and Noble locations will not be able to apply that incentive online; however, will be offering several online-only special discounts throughout the year, including a special during football season where all shoppers will receive 20 percent off one item every Monday after a home football game win.

Shoppers who use the new site will have the option to have their orders shipped to the on-campus store, located in the Student Center, or they can opt to have them mailed directly to their homes.
