Textbook rental is simple! Now at The Campus Bookstore, you can rent a range of textbooks, and then you return them at the end of the Rental Agreement by the Due Date.

Over 50%! Renting textbooks saves you more than 50% off the RRP of a new, printed textbook. 

All textbook rental orders must be placed online through our website https://www.thecampusbookstore.com/.

We will require payment by credit card (Master Card or Visa Card).
Please note your credit card must have an expiry date that is longer than your rental period.

The rental period begins the day you receive the textbook and continues until the Rental Return Due Date as shown on your Rental Agreement.

All Rental Books must be returned by mail or in person. If by mail just use the packaging your original Rental Books arrived in and the reply paid mail label provided.


Textbook rental returns must be postmarked by the Rental Return Due Date.

Simple! We post the list of Textbook Rentals on the bookstore website. Online, it’s really easy – if we’re renting a textbook, the “Rental” option will be displayed alongside “New” and/or “Used” (if available). Just check the box and follow the instructions.
