Fall Book Returns

Fall textbook rentals are due December 9, 2022. Books must be returned to the bookstore in Gillespie Hall Lobby.  

Please return books ASAP to avoid non-returned book fees. 

If you are an Out-of-Town student (over an hour drive from the STL campus) please contact the bookstore at and we will email you a return postage label. We will need to know how many books you have checked out (for the weight) and your full mailing address.  

If returning books by mail, please pack your books well with packing material & firmly secure the box with packing tape to ensure the safe return of your books. Take your package to the designated shipping agent. Make a copy/take a picture of your tracking number so you can track your package after shipping. Get a receipt!
