Book rentals are one way students can save. UP’s rental program grows each semester; in the current semester, students rented almost 4,300 books, saving an average of 50 percent off the price of a new book, with many books at an 80 percent discount. Over 80 percent of textbooks are available to rent.
Used book are another way for students to save money. The more time bookstore personnel have to find used books, the more copies they will be able to stock for students. UP Bookstore competes for used books everyday with bookstores across the country. With variable pricing on rental books, students save even more by renting a used book. Placing faculty book orders early will also enable Barnes & Noble to buy back textbooks from students. If the book is being used again in the fall semester, students can receive 50 percent back in cash for that book.
How to place book orders:
- Website (www.uportland.bkstore.com), go to Faculty Services to fill out the online form.
- E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) – please provide complete information on the books and course.

- Book order forms are available through department assistants or the bookstore.
