Fall Rentals Available Now


Try before you buy! You can apply the rental price you paid as a credit to the purchase price to keep the book.


Rental pricing is updated throughout each semester to compete with the entire marketplace.


Drop or switch classes? You have 14 days from the beginning of each semester to return your rentals to receive a full refund.


  • Place rentals in any one of our THREE on-campus drop boxes. Two located in Carson, one in Fallon.
  • We will also have a WNC "Pop-Up" Bookstore at the Carson campus during the last week of each semester (CLICK HERE for dates/times)
  • Simply mail your books back to 2220 Dickerson Road Reno, NV 89503, Attention: Returns (year-round)
    Have an assignment due? Rent your books and have your rentals delivered in one to three business days.  
    You don’t have to spend more for new rentals, there is only one rental price regardless if the book is new or used.
    How long do I get to keep a rental?
    A rental is not due until the end of the semester. All Fall 2021 rentals are due on or before December 20th, 2021.
    I like to buy my books instead of renting because I may need to keep them.  Why should I rent?
    We have a Rental+ Program, meaning the full rental price paid can be applied to the purchase price at the end of the semester if you want to keep your book. For example, if the rental price is $25 and the purchase price is $75, you would pay $50 to keep the book at the end of the semester.
    Can I rent books or packages with an access code in them?
    Yes, the rental price includes the purchase of the access code, and the book will need to be returned at the end of the semester.
    Can I write or highlight in my rental?
    Standard writing/highlighting in the book is allowed. Excessive highlighting or writing can result in the rental being deemed damaged (See question below).
    Why do I need to put a debit/credit card on file for a rental?
    We require a debit/credit card to be held on file in case the rental is not returned.

    How do I return my rental?
    It’s easy. We don't require a receipt. Return your rentals at the end of the semester to the bookstore or mail them to:

    WNC Bookstore, ATTN: Rental Returns, 2220 Dickerson Rd Reno, NV 89503

    **Please make sure your contact information is located in the package.**

    What if I don’t return my rental?
    The bookstore will charge the card on file for the list price of the book plus a $10/rental late fee.
    Did you get the books I returned?
    When rentals are returned, you will receive an emailed receipt showing they are returned.
    What if I need to extend my rental? 
    Please contact the bookstore to pay the upcoming semester's rental fee.
    What if I want to keep my book? 
    Please contact the bookstore to let us know that you want to keep the book. The bookstore has a Rental+ Program meaning the full rental price paid will be applied to the purchase price if you want to keep your book. For example, if the rental price is $25 and the purchase price is $75, you would pay $50 to keep the book.
    What if I lost or damaged my rentals?
    Students are required to pay the difference in how much was paid for the rental price minus the purchase price.

    Rental Agreement

    Fall 2021 textbooks are due back on December 20th, 2021. I will return the rented materials to this bookstore on or before the rental return date.  The bookstore is not responsible for reminding me of the rental return date and is not responsible for returns that are lost or damaged in shipping. I am fully responsible for the condition of the materials rented to me and for payment of fees and replacement costs if rented materials are lost, stolen or returned in unacceptable condition. Unacceptable conditions include, but are not limited to, water damage, pages torn out, binder spine fraying or falling apart, excessive highlighting and writing on pages, and missing CD’s or other study aides. All rented materials are subject to these conditions and the Bookstore will decide what is or is not acceptable at the time the rented materials are returned.

    If I fail to return the rented materials by the rental return date printed on my receipt the credit card on file with the bookstore will be charged a $10.00 late fee per book and the full retail list price of the rented materials. If the credit card on file is declined or has been cancelled, a bill will be sent to the address on file. If this bill is not paid within 30 days, it will be turned over to a collections agency. Replacement of rental materials (exact duplicate, correct ISBN, title, author, edition, etc.) will be accepted in lieu of any damaged rental materials on or before the rental return date. The Bookstore’s refund policy applies for all rental materials."
