Saint Xavier University Chicago Campus Residence Halls


The Saint Xavier University Campus Bookstore is a convenient and welcoming facility to both the University and the surrounding community. The 6,000-square-foot location in SXU's Shannon Center offers more than textbooks. It carries an extensive line of gifts and greeting cards, as well as Saint Xavier sportswear, Cougar Spirit items, New York Times best-sellers, school supplies, candy and snacks.

The bookstore accepts cash, personal checks (current student ID required), Cougar Card (Flex, Cougar Cash and Financial Aid), Campus Bookstore gift cards, American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa.

SXU Campus Bookstore Hours

The bookstore is closed most weekends and University holidays. Extended hours are offered surrounding the start of spring and fall semesters. Shorter hours are observed over the summer.

Note: Please bring a printed copy of your course schedule with you to the bookstore. The printed copy of your schedule will ensure that you receive the correct texts for your classes. Orders placed on the website will be packed and waiting for you upon arrival.

Rental Textbooks

We are offering students the option of ordering rental books online. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Select books, adding rental books to your cart the same as you would new or used textbooks.
  2. At checkout, your total will include the rental fee. A Mastercard or Visa number is required as collateral.

Return Policy

Textbook returns will be accepted for a full refund, with a cash register receipt, within five business days from the original date of purchase or up to the drop date for the course -- whichever comes first.

If the student has dropped the course to which textbooks were assigned, he or she may return bookstore textbooks with a drop slip and cash-register receipt up until the drop date for the course. If the course is dropped online, the Self-Service drop confirmation page must be printed and presented to the bookstore as a drop slip. The consumer is responsible for knowing the drop dates for their courses.

There will be absolutely no returns or exchanges on textbooks after the drop date for the course has passed.

Returned or exchanged merchandise and textbooks must be in their original condition, accompanied by a receipt and within the allotted time frame.

There are no returns on trade or reference books.

Merchandise may be returned within 30 days of purchase. Please note: All clearance items are "as is," and all clearance sales are final.
