Rental:  Our rental list is live and ready to go, and our new and improved textbooks rental is better than ever now that we're cutting out the middle man and handling our rental program inhouse. That's good news for you, because it just gets easier and easier to rent from UBE, and many of our rental prices are now lower. If the book is on the shelf, and it has a rental price on the tag, you can rent it at any register in the building. There's no waiting, no fussing with shipping, and returns are a breeze---just walk into the store and drop the book off! Unfortunately, due to technical restrictions, you must be present in the store in order to rent books. Click this link to see our book price list sorted by course, or use this one, instead, if you need to sort the list by author and title. Our rental policy and rules can be found here.
