study books

Dear students of Literary Studies,

Welcome to Utrecht and welcome to the bookstore Savannah Bay! They are a little independent bookstore located in the city centre of Utrecht. Savannah Bay provides, in collaboration with Euphorion, the compulsory study books for the courses.

Savannah Bay is a special bookstore with a specialisation in literature and poetry from domestic and foreign authors. There is also a special section reserved for books about gender and LGBT. Savannah Bay offers an extensive and surprising assortment of titles. Other than literature and poetry they also have books about lifestyle, cooking, postcolonial studies, YA literature and sexuality. Savannah Bay has all the study books for Literary Studies, Dutch, Art History, Language Studies and Genderstudies.

Here is some information about how you can buy the books.

List of literature:
Before a course starts you will find a list in the store where all the books you will need are written down. The books needed for the first year students will also be on their website.

The books will be available from approximately halfway August. You can either come to the store to pick them up or you can order them to your doorstep. The shop is easy to find. It is in the centre (next to filmtheatre ‘t Hoogt, near Neude square and City Hall). If you want to order online, the books are found under the heading of ‘studieboeken’ and the webshop can be accessed through this link:

They prefer it if you come and pick them up in person so they can meet you and it saves you the shipment fee 😉

Discount for members of Euphorion:
Members of Euphorion will be granted a discount of 5% on all compulsory study books. In the store you can find both the normal prize and the discounted prize for members.

How will I get the discount:
You can fill in the form on this site and become a member of Euphorion. Euphorion will give Savannah Bay a list with names and student numbers of their members. When you buy books in the store you only say your name and student number and they will check and give you the discount if you are on the list.

When you order online:

  1. When you are checking out your books there will be a question for a ‘couponcode’. This is “Euphorion17/18”. If you fill in the code then you will receive the discount on the study books that you have ordered.
  2. In the ‘opmerkingenveld’ you will have to fill in your studentnumber so that they can check your membership.

Good luck and enjoy your study! We’ll see you soon in our store.
