The University of Texas at Austin is closing its bookshop in the wake of a potential shutdown, the school announced on Monday.
The university announced on Twitter that the bookstore would close on Tuesday, but no specific time was announced.UTSA, which is about 35 miles south of downtown Dallas, is one of the nation’s largest public universities and has seen its enrollment increase by more than 50 percent in the past decade.
The bookstore, which opened in 1994 and is the flagship store of the university, has been an institution of higher learning for decades.
In 2015, UTSA announced that it was moving to the city of Austin, a move that came after a federal judge ruled that the university had not demonstrated a compelling need for the move.
The UTSA bookstore reopened in 2019, after a $1.6 million renovation and was named one of Texas’ top 10 best museums in a report released by the Austin-based Museum of Art in 2017.
The bookshop has since been expanded to include an online shop.
