Option 1: Return textbook rentals to the CSU Bookstore before Sell Back
You can drop off your textbook rentals at the CSU bookstore during normal business hours. Bring your textbook rentals, along with your student ID, to the lower level registers near Cam’s Lobby Shop/CSU Transit Center where a CSU Bookstore employee will process the rental return.

During finals week, return your textbook rentals to one of our four sell back locations across campus. Bring your student id, your rental books, and any textbooks you wish to sell to any of the sell back locations, and we will process the rental return.Find a Sell Back Location
