The general purpose of Textbook Rental Services is to provide textbooks to meet the educational needs of UW-La Crosse undergraduate students and the UWL academic departments and programs.  Textbook Rental Services is not intended to fulfill all student, faculty, or classroom resource material needs.  Undergraduate students pay a textbook rental fee each semester as part of their tuition to support the textbook rental program.  Graduate students purchase their textbooks at the University Bookstore.
