Textbook Rental Return

Details about how to return your rental textbooks to the CSU Bookstore.

As the semester winds down, you will need to return textbook rentals to the CSU Bookstore. Below are instructions on how to return textbook rentals to ensure you are not assessed any late fees or charged to replace unreturned textbooks.

Please Write Your Name and Student ID Inside Your Book Returns: Help us process rental returns quickly. Please write your name and 9 digit student ID number inside the front cover of your rental book.
We are extending the due date for rentals for the Spring 2020 semester to June 5, 2020.

CAUTION: These instructions are only for textbooks rented from the CSU Bookstore.

Option 1:Return Your Books Curbside at CSU Bookstore

You can drop off your textbook rentals at the CSU Bookstore curbside. Simply drive up to the north side of the Engineering/Lory Student Center parking lot (see map below) and look for the sign near the entrance.

Curbside Rental Returns will be accepted from 10 am - 4 pm from Tuesday, May 26 until Friday, May 29, 2020. If these times do not fit your schedule, please take advantage of our free label request below.
