Textbooks for fall 2017

It is a new semester, which means many Laurier students will have new classmates, new instructors, new assignments, new syllabuses and, of course, new textbooks.

Purchasing Textbooks

Students are encouraged to buy their textbooks early to ensure all options (new, used, rental, digital access code) are available.

For current Laurier students, textbook lists can be generated automatically. The Laurier Bookstore also offers a convenient online web order service. Books can be ordered online and picked up at the bookstore within 24 hours, on the next business day.

Selling Textbooks

For students who would like to sell their used textbooks, the Laurier Bookstore is running book buyback in the Concourse on Laurier’s Waterloo campus on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 5 through Friday, Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sept. 9 from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
  • Monday, Sept. 11 through Thursday, Sept. 14 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sept. 16 from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Following the September events, the next book buyback on the Waterloo campus will take place during the December exam period.

On Laurier’s Brantford campus, a book buyback event will take place in the Research and Academic Centre West (RCW) lobby on Thursday, Sept. 7 and Friday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Monday, Sept. 11 through Friday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Returning Textbooks

The Laurier Bookstore offers a full refund for textbooks in new condition that are returned with receipt by the end of the second week of classes. If students drop a course after the refund deadline, they can return books until the final drop date of classes with a LORIS account printout and receipt, as long as the book is in new condition. No restocking fee will be applied. Learn more about the bookstore return policy and exemptions.
