(Lexington, Ky) Spring Hill College has partnered with eCampus.com as the institution’s official online bookstore beginning Summer of 2023. Located in Mobile, Ala. Spring Hill is the state’s oldest institution of higher learning. With a focus on a holistic and well-rounded education, it is the third-oldest Jesuit Catholic College in the United States. Textbook affordability and increased access to course materials are driving factors behind the decision of eCampus.com as the college’s official online bookstore program.
To bring students an accessible online shopping experience, eCampus.com will provide a customized online portal where students can shop for their required course materials. A broad range of textbook formats will be available to purchase new or used, as well as textbook rentals and digital content, all at the best available prices. SHC students will also have access to eCampus.com’s proprietary Marketplace where they can purchase textbooks from individual sellers at deep discounts along with 24/7 access to eCampus.com customer service.
“Spring Hill College is very excited about this partnership with eCampus.com,” said Mary H.

This is a great way for us to better support and serve our campus community.”
Because accessibility and convenience are essential to eCampus.com and Spring Hill, students will also be offered a variety of shipping options that suit their needs. As an additional convenience, students can also save time and money by having their orders delivered directly to campus for pickup.
“eCampus.com recognizes the increasing challenges of textbook affordability for students,” says Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “We applaud Spring Hill College’s commitment to driving down the cost of higher education while offering students maximum flexibility when it comes to course material formats and availability.
