Due to the confusion surrounding rental textbook returns during the COVID-19 pandemic, the University Bookstore will now accept any/all book rental returns throughout the summer with a final drop-off date of Friday, Aug. 7. Students will not be charged a late fee during this time. Late fees will be imposed after Aug. 7, as textbooks are needed for fall semester.
The following are options for returning textbooks by the final drop-off date of Friday, Aug. 7:
- Free of charge: Return books to campus.
- UW-Eau Claire students: Textbook return bins are located at the W.R. Davies Student Center south entrance (Phillips parking lot side). Drop-off times will be from 9 a.m.–3 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Books will be scanned back to your Blugold ID to verify textbook returns.
- UW-Eau Claire – Barron County students: Textbook return bins are located in the UW-Eau Claire – Barron County Commons entrance vestibule. Drop-off times will be from 9 a.m.–3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Simply drop off textbooks and they will be transported to the UW-Eau Claire Bookstore where they will be scanned back to your Blugold ID to verify that they were returned.
- Pay for shipping: Ship books to the University Bookstore at your own cost via UPS, U.S. Postal Service or FedEx, to this address:
