Amazon@UT Austin will be the first Amazon pickup location in Texas

(NASDAQ: AMZN)–Amazon today announced an agreement with The University of Texas at Austin to open Amazon@UT Austin, a staffed pickup location in Gregory Gymnasium on the UT Austin campus. The first Amazon pickup location in the state of Texas, Amazon@UT Austin offers the campus community a convenient location to pick up and return Amazon orders, including virtually everything one needs, from everyday essentials to technology.

Opening in Summer 2016, this 2,509-square-foot space will be located in Gregory Gymnasium, conveniently situated for UT Austin students, staff and faculty. Additionally, Amazon Student and Prime members will receive Free One-Day Pickup for orders placed by 10PM on over two million items. To learn more about Amazon Student, visit amazon.com/joinstudent.

“This partnership with Amazon is one more way that the university is providing value to our campus community. With the pickup location in the heart of the UT Austin campus, this enhanced service will benefit our students, offering them a convenient and secure place to pick up their merchandise. Faculty and staff will also be able to take advantage of the service,” said Gage E. Paine, vice president for student affairs at The University of Texas at Austin.

“With Amazon@UT Austin, students will have a convenient location on campus in addition to all of the benefits of shopping on Amazon—like low prices and massive selection,” said Ripley MacDonald, Director of Amazon Student Programs. “We’re excited to expand to UT Austin and even more college communities soon.”

Since 2015, Amazon has opened staffed pickup locations at the following universities: Purdue University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and University of California, Berkeley, as well as in the college communities of University of California, Santa Barbara, and University of Cincinnati. In addition to The University of Texas at Austin, Amazon also has confirmed agreements to open two more locations in 2016 with the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California, Davis.
