Buyback is BACK - but off campus

Buyback is now being offered off Campus.

Please note that the Co-op Bookstore remains closed to the public.  However we are happy to  offer a curbside buyback program just slightly off campus at our Housing office on College Avenue. It's a cashless buyback - bring your Debit card and we can credit your account if you sell anything. 

Where: 17 College Ave West, Guelph

When:   Wednesdays from 10am - 3pm

How:  Bring your books back during these times and dates to 17 College Ave West.   Buyback is conducted through a window at the side of our building.  Please follow the signs.  Buyer will scan them and let you know the current value.   If you sell we will deposit money onto your Debit card.



Send us an email to with the subject line: Buyback

Include your book ISBN, title, author and edition that you are interested in selling.   We can confirm the prices and if you wish to proceed, can send you a shipping tag so you can ship your books back to us.   A pre-quoted shipping charge will be deducted from your total book value.   Once we receive the books, and they are in acceptable buyback condition (see below), we will issue you credit.

Can't sell your book?  Donations are being collected at 17 College Ave West.  Donation program is not available through mail.  Donations currently go to Textbooks for Change.

Public Health Order:  Please note you must wear a mask during this transaction.  Our buyer will be wearing a mask.  Hand sanitizer is provided.  Counter and POS system are cleaned between customers.  This is 'curbside buyback'.  Customers remain outside of the building.  Please keep a distance of 6 feet between you and any other person.

Thank you for your co-operation.
