Selling Used Textbooks

Buyback takes place 4 times a year on Main Street: at the beginning of Fall semester in September, through final exams in December, for the first week of January, and at the end of Winter semester in April.

Please note that Buyback will not be available until further notice.


How Buyback Works

Tell us which books you want to sell and we'll tell you how much we can give you for them.

  • When a book is being used at MRU for the next term, we are able to offer students up to 50% of the new price.
  • When a book is needed by another Canadian institution, we are able to offer up to 30% of the new price.
  • When a book is purchased for a used book wholesaler, we are able to offer approximately 10-30% of the new price. It all depends on demand.
  • Photo ID and credit/debit cards are required because buyback is cashless.
