        Textbook Buyback Dates - Next Buyback Last Week of August

        The Bookstore will be buying your used texts again in the last week of August and the first week of September.  Actual dates will be set later this summer, so stay tuned.  Remember there are no line ups in August!  The Bookstore will pay 55% of the new price of your book, provided it is being used in the upcoming term. Check the Fall booklist closer to the start of the Fall term to see whether your book has been chosen by Capilano Faculty for use again.  If your book is not being used, the Bookstore can still offer a "wholesale" rate for your book, usually between 10%- 30% of its new price, as the book will be shipped to the U.S. 

        Summer Hours

        The Bookstore moves to its summer hours on August 25th.  The store will be open 8:15-4:00, Monday through Friday until mid August.

        Buy Your Books Online

        You can view your books by visiting the Bookstore Online. We will fill your order with your preference of new or used books if available, and have them delivered to your home within 2-4 business days of placing your order. Delivery to residents in rural areas may take longer. After ordering online, you will receive a confirmation message to confirm that we have received your book order. You card is not charged at that time but charged later on when we are ready to pick, pack, and ship your books. If a used book is not available for your order it will be substituted with a new book. If you don't want to receive substitutions please place a note in the note field of your order stating that you do not want to accept a substitution of a new book if the used is not available.  The online ordering system does not accept pre-paid credit cards or Visa debit cards. We do not ship to P.O. Box numbers. We only ship to addresses with a street address. If you will not be home to sign for your parcel it is best to ship it to your work address where there will be someone there to sign for the parcel. If you received a door knocker from UPS, It is your responsibility to call the number on the door knocker to arrange for the delivery of your books.


        If you want to review the assigned books for the current term you can also look up the courses that you'll take at our Bookstore Online.  You won't be asked to purchase anything until you are ready. One thing to note, if you see that a book has N/A (not available) listed beside it, the book has not arrived at the Bookstore yet, and you won't be able to purchase it until it is in stock. Very useful, if you want to know whether to come into the store to do in person shopping or not! 

        Access a Personalized Book List

        You can obtain a personalized booklist from the Capilano University Registration page. While registering for courses, follow the Textbook link at the bottom and you will access a page with a list of books for your courses that you can view or  purchase.  You may see some courses without books, and sometimes the books you'll need won't be ordered until closer to the start of term.  You can come back to the Registration page anytime to see if there have been updates to what you will need to read. 


        Refund Deadline: The refund deadline for Summer Term 1  Books is May 19th 2017.  Sorry, we can not refund Print Packages. Keep your receipts, you'll need them for all your refunds.
