University of Reston students will have their textbooks included as part of their courses. The textbooks are provided in digital format (e-book format).

Additionally, students may simply rent more books should they wish through the student portal. This provides many benefits such as ability to search for keywords, universal access from just about anywhere, and reduced footprint on the environment.

University of Reston Bookstore staff are available year-round to help students, faculty and staff with their printed or digital textbook rentals or purchases.

Faculty or staff desiring desk or exam copies of textbooks prior to course adoption can request such materials through the Bookstore by providing the following information:

  • Course name
  • Course number
  • Instructor’s name
  • Probable enrollment numbers
  • Course start date
