Welcome to the UWM Virtual Bookstore-your official source for affordable textbook options. We offer textbook rentals, new and used textbooks, eTextbooks, textbook buybacks, school supplies, UWM apparel and much more. Start shopping or learn more about your options for textbooks, outlined below.
NEW Textbooks - New books are brand new from the publisher. They come directly from our warehouse to you. New books will arrive fresh in appearance with a crisp unopened feel.
USED Textbooks - Used textbooks are a great way to save money. A used book may contain reasonable highlighting, margin notes or other markings. We'll always choose the highest quality used textbooks available to fill your order.
RENTAL Textbooks - By renting your textbooks, you can save as much as 80% on your textbook expenses. When renting your textbooks be sure to pay attention to the following items:
- The term of your rental period (i.e. semester, quarter, or short term)
- The date that your rental is due back
- Which books you rented to ensure the correct returns are made
You are able to view all of this information via the "My Account" section of the Virtual Bookstore. To aid in the return of rented textbooks, we provide you with a prepaid UPS label to ship your book. This label is accessible through the "My Account" section of our site under the "My Rentals" tab or can be printed by visiting uwm.ecampus.com/return-my-rental. To avoid additional charges, your return shipments must be scanned within the UPS package tracking system by the rental return date.
eTextbooks - eTextbooks are digital versions of print textbooks that contain the same content as the print textbooks and include enhanced features such as high-speed search and electronic note-taking. Once you purchase an e-book from eCampus.com, you will receive an email with a link to access your eTextbook online. Be sure to note the following items when purchasing an e-book:
- Whether you have a device on which you can access e-books
- Whether you are comfortable accessing your course materials via your device on a regular basis
- The subscription time (i.e. the time frame you will have access to this e-book via your device)
Due to the nature of the item, e-book purchases are not eligible for return or refund under any circumstances as stated in your shopping cart, during the checkout process and other areas of our website. UWM eTextbooks are supported by either VitalSource. Please click here for additional technical information regarding ebooks.
