Course Materials: Information for Students

A Room of One's Own carries a range of new and used course materials for a variety of classes from UW-Madison and Madison College! Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions.

When should I stop in to buy my books?

 

The best time to come in is the week before classes begin. By then, we usually have had time to get most course orders from your professors, order the books (including used copies), and have then checked in and ready to go on the textbook shelves.

We carry a range of new and used course materials for a variety of classes from UW-Madison and Madison College!

Come In this Weekend!: We recommend coming in on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday (January 17-20th) for the best chance at getting used books. Most titles, used and new, will be here by Friday Jan 17th. We will continue to carry course materials for the first 6 weeks of the semester, so make sure to stop in sooner rather than later!

Save Money!: Please note that used textbooks are not available to order online, but we DO have used copies of many titles in stock--we strongly recommend coming into the store to see if used copies of your textbooks are available BEFORE you order online! We also offer rentals on select textbooks in an effort to make this semester a little more affordable for you.

Sell Your Old Textbooks!: We are still buying back your course books from previous semesters--the last day to sell old course books is MONDAY, JANUARY 20th, so make sure to come by before that time for a chance to get cash back on your old textbooks.

We are open from 10am-8pm Mon-Fri and 12-5 on Sunday. If you have any questions about coursebooks, please call us at 608-257-7888. We are not able to hold course materials--out of fairness, used and new textbooks are only available on a first come, first-served basis.

Instructors!: If you are an instructor looking to have us carry course books for your class, it isn't too late! Please get in touch with us by email (room@chorus.net) or phone (608-257-7888).
