The main Bookstore is located centrally on campus, on the ground floor of the MacEwan Student Centre. We offer required and recommended textbooks for courses at the publisher's list price and make every effort to obtain the least expensive options for students. We also provide a used textbook buyback service, a free online classified service, and a buyback alert service. In our digital world, books can be located from a variety of sources, however your campus Bookstore offers the advantage of having exactly the books you need, in stock for the beginning of classes, all with a hassle-free returns policy. Digital or e-books can be a great option for some students. Benefits can include portability, continual updates, and additional tools that help you highlight, search, or take notes. As more textbook titles become available, the University of Calgary Bookstore will carry both choices. Some of the textbooks we carry can be rented instead of purchased. You can rent your textbooks online and have them quickly delivered right to your door for a fraction of the cost of purchasing them new. Students typically save 50% off of the new book retail price by renting.
