York U operates textbook rental program

January 5, 2011

As part of its efforts to save students money, the York University Bookstore has introduced a new textbook rental program. Students wishing to rent books can go to the bookstore's textbook rental portal to search for textbooks and decide on a rental time frame, which ranges from 30 to 125 days. Students will receive the books via Canada Post and can return them to the university bookstore on or before the return date. Post-secondary institutions with textbook rental programs include the University of Toronto, Canadore College, Humber College, the University of Winnipeg, St. Clair College, and Carleton University.
