Book Buyback

Our Spring 2023 in-store buyback session will be May 1 - 12 at the Twin Cities campus, May 1 - 5 at the Crookston Campus, and May 4 - 12 at the Morris Campus

In-store Buyback Guidelines

  • Books do not have to be purchased from U of MN Bookstores to be eligible for buyback.
  • Only sell purchased books -- do not sell rentals.
  • When selling back in store, we will evaluate your books for damage and use before offering a final price.
  • U of M Bookstores buyback pricing information will not be provided via phone or email, as it is subject to change. You must bring your books in store in order to get a price quote.
