In light of COVID-19, Ambrose University has decided to close the physical bookstore for the time being. But good news, the online store is always open! Browse away, place orders, and we'll get back to you as soon as we're able. Email us with any questions:

Textbook Rentals

We run a popular in-store rental program where students can rent select textbooks directly off the shelf. Students receive a rental discount at point of purchase and must return their rentals or buy out the book by the end of exams in the same semester. See store for details.

Book Buybacks & Donations

We partner with MBS for buybacks four times a year (beginning and end of every semester).

Here's how the buyback works:

  • MBS provides us with buyback guide database. Students can either bring their books or email a list (include title, author, ISBN). If our store is looking for the book, we pay students 50% of retail price. 
  • MBS buys used books on behalf of other colleges and universities, so if a books is not on the Ambrose list, MBS might make an offer (7-30% of retail price).
  • If your book is not on any of the lists, you can donate through a Better World Books drop box outside our store. At the beginning and end of each semester we post a buyback list in our online store. Contact us or watch our newsletter and/or social media for details.
  • If Follett is not looking for one of your books, you may donate it and we'll send it to Better World Books.
