FALL 2020 TEXT RENTAL INFORMATION

STEVENS POINT CAMPUS

In order to provide excellent service to our students while keeping safety as a top priority, the University Store & Text Rental, operated by Barnes & Noble College, will have multiple service options available to obtain fall course materials. 

If you are a UWSP student living in the residence halls and attending the UWSP main campus:

Your rental textbooks will be prepackaged for you to pick up on the day of your scheduled move in. Students should plan to come to Text Rental to pick up their books within 2-3 hours following their scheduled move-in time in their residence hall. This will allow for minimal contact and help to distribute the flow of traffic. Masks are required when visiting the University Store & Text Rental.

If you are a student living off-campus or commuting, the following options are available to you for textbook rental check-out this fall at the UWSP main campus:

Shipping: Students may choose to order their books through the University Store's website and have them shipped to their address. For purchases below $50 there is a $5 shipping fee; purchases $50 and up ship for free. Please note, shipping is the recommended option if you live off campus or commute. To have your books shipped, please visit https://uwsp.bncollege.com and select "find textbooks" under the textbooks tab. You will need your course schedule available to select the courses in which you are enrolled. Once you have entered your course information, click "find materials" to be shown the textbooks for your course. Simply add them to your cart and complete the checkout process. Books listed as "prepaid" are part of our Textbook Rental program and included as part of your tuition. Materials that show a "new" or "used" option with a price are available for purchase and designated as required, recommended, etc. at the direction of your professor. These materials need to be purchased but will be shipped free of charge with your rental textbooks. Please allow 5-7 days for shipping to ensure that your course materials arrive prior to the start of your courses. 

In-Person Pick-Up: The University Store & Text Rental will offer additional store hours to provide in-person service while accommodating for occupancy restrictions. Students picking up their books in-person will need to bring their student ID and either their course schedule or their book list, which can be found on the UWSP AccessPoint system. Textbooks will only be prepackaged for students living in the residence halls. Those not living in the halls who choose to pick up their books in-person will need to shop for their books on the shelves. Masks are required and social distancing must be observed. 

The University Store & Text Rental will be open the following hours:

        August 3-21: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
