Why rent?

If you don't plan on using the book after the term is over and want to avoid keeping track of sellback prices, renting may be a great option for you! Renting lets you save money upfront, often 20-50% off the purchase price!

Whether you are ordering online or at the OSU campus Beaver Store, renting is quick and easy:
  1. Select the rental option at checkout.
  2. Be nice to your book throughout the term; someone else will want to use the book after you are finished with it!
  3. Seriously. See #2. Water damage, fire damage, doggie chew-toy damage and other damage will render your book non-returnable and you will be on the hook to buy out your rental agreement.
  4. Return your book by the end of Finals Week.
    (slight extensions for eCampus students may apply)
  5. Treat yourself to something nice with all the $$$ you saved by renting!


FAQs

Certainly! Please do keep in mind that other students may want to make their own notes and highlights after you return the book though. Excessive highlighting and notation will render your rental non-returnable.

Removing the binding or otherwise significantly altering the book will render your rental non-returnable.

Please contact Customer Service during business hours via phone at 541-737-0041 and have your original receipt on hand. We will need to "check-in" your rental and process additional payment to transfer ownership of the book to you. Failure to return your rental without contacting the Beaver Store will result in non-return fees.

You will be charged the replacement cost of the book as well as a non-return fee. Failure to pay non-return fees will result in a hold being placed on your student account. The book is now yours to keep, forever and always.

At the end of a rental contract, the Beaver Store sells the rented book to a wholesaler (and passes that value on to you in the rental price). Books that we are not able to rent likely suffer from low national demand or have a limited audience.

Please send an email to textbooks@osubeaverstore.com and let us know:
