Dear Students,

Whether you are studying on campus or from home or elsewhere, please read this note carefully for all the information you’ll need to get your coursebooks from Labyrinth at your usual 30% discount. We have new deadlines and procedures you will need to follow. These are in place to allow you to get the books you need in time for the start of classes and in a safe and efficient way. We ask for your cooperation. Savings under the buyback program still come to 55% off new books and 62.5% off used books.

Shipping for students studying remotely:

Shipping to out-of-town addresses via UPS will be free for up to two orders. Please note that international shipping times will vary greatly due to Covid19 restrictions and timely arrival cannot be guaranteed.

How and when to order books:

On August 15, the classes of ‘21, ’22, and ’23 & all graduate students can start ordering assigned books via your Blackboard course sites or via the book icon on the Registrar’s listing for your courses. Please order all the books you know you will need in a single order and place this order as early as you can to allow maximum time for processing and shipping.

The ordering schedule is as follows:

August 15 – 24: open ordering.

August 25 – 27: reserved for first-year student order processing as these students can only complete their registration at this point.

August 28 – September 18: open ordering.

September 30: last day of order shipment for fall coursebooks.

In-town Order Delivery & Pickup:

If you are an undergraduate student coming to campus who will be quarantining upon arrival, your books will be delivered. The University’s Print and Mail services will reach out individually to coordinate.

If you are a graduate student, an undergraduate living locally, or an undergrad on campus who does not have to quarantine, you must make an appointment for socially distanced pickup in the store after you get your ‘order ready’ email by visiting This is how we will ensure that you can be helped safely and efficiently. Pick-up appointments start August 20th. Please do not come to the store for coursebook pickup without an appointment.

If you are a graduate student needing to quarantine on arrival, we ask that you pick up your books after you have completed your quarantine by making a pickup appointment.

There will be no in-store counter service this term.

**Important: We recommend that you order all the books as you know you will need in a single order early in your class’s order-window.**
