Find the Course Materials You Need (and the CSU Rams Gear You Want) at the CSU Bookstore!

When you need materials for your courses at Colorado State University, you can find textbooks and more at the CSU Bookstore. Only the CSU Bookstore works directly with instructors and professors to get the materials you need for courses at CSU, CSU Online (including online MBA programs), and Semester at Sea voyages at competitive prices. We provide CSU students with course materials for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Your purchase from the CSU Bookstore also helps support Colorado State University students! Your money stays on campus because the CSU Bookstore returns ALL revenues to Colorado State University to support student programs and services. 

The Official CSU Bookstore is a leader in innovative and money-saving programs directed to help Colorado State University students, our most-valued customer. In purchasing textbooks, students rely on the Bookstore for ease, convenience, and value, starting with the Textbook Preorder program and the online price comparison tool. We sell used textbooks, and even provide textbook rental options on many course materials. Quality digital course materials also are available for many courses, and our Day One Access program provides affordable digital course materials to all students enrolled in a course on the first day of class. The CSU Bookstore also supports Open Educational Resource programs, which provides students with digital course materials at no or low cost.  

At the end of each semester students can get cash back for used textbooks in good condition at the CSU Bookstore-sponsored Buy Back. At Buy Back, we purchase in-demand titles and put these books back into the backpacks of students as lower priced used textbooks. Using these price-saving options, Colorado State University students saved nearly $5.5 million last year.

Colorado State University students can charge course materials to their student accounts, allowing them to get the course materials they need, and pay at a later date. Every Colorado State University student can charge course materials and essential supplies to their student account. 

Located on-campus inside the Lory Student Center, the CSU Bookstore also offers supplies you’ll need for class – notebooks, pens, pencils, and reference books – and an impressive selection of art supplies. The Bookstore is dedicated to providing students with essential tools to successfully pursue and achieve their educational goals and objectives, with a priority to exceed each customer’s expectations.

The CSU Bookstore also supports the needs of students attending courses at Colorado State University Online and Semester at Sea. We ship course materials across the nation and around the world! Our order fulfillment department aims to provide our remote student customers the same level of service you would receive when shopping in our store. 

When you are done shopping for course materials and supplies, be sure to check our our wide selection of CSU Rams Gear! We carry a wide selection of t-shirts, hats, work-out wear, water bottles, decals, and other CSU Rams gear. Get outfitted BEFORE you go to Canvas Stadium and Moby Arena at the CSU Bookstore!
