Return or sell your books to the Bruin Store

Monday, December 9th, 2019

If you rented books for fall semester through the Bruin Store, the last day to check those books back in is Friday, Dec. 13. Please bring them to the Bruin Store (along with your student ID) during business hours to avoid any late, processing, or non-return fees.
