Am I eligible for the course book discount program at Labyrinth Books?

The 30 percent discount on course book purchases through Labyrinth Books is available to the following Princeton University students:

  • regularly enrolled, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students
  • international exchange students enrolled in Princeton courses on a full-time basis
  • post graduation students in the Program in Teacher Preparation

If you are eligible for the program, you may purchase new and used course books for use in Princeton University courses. Both required and recommended titles on the course reading lists are included in the discount program. The discount is limited to one copy per title.

You can pay for your course books at Labyrinth Books using a student account credit card, check, or cash. There are two ways to buy your books from Labyrinth: you can always come directly to the coursebook counter and someone will help you collect your books, or you can order online via the books tab in the main navigation bar in Canvas. Labyrinth staff will package all online course book orders in advance and have them ready for express pickup at the store at 122 Nassau Street.

You will receive an email confirmation of your order as soon as you have checked out with a list of the books you ordered and an estimated timeframe for pickup. As soon as Labyrinth has finalized your order, you will receive a second email to let you know the books are being held for you and for how long.

If you have paid for your order online using your student ID card, your books will be ready at a designated express pickup area downstairs at Labyrinth. You have to pick up your order in person, as you will need to give your name, show your student ID, and sign a statement of eligibility to get your books. If you choose to pay with a credit card, check or cash in the store, you will go to the pick-up counter downstairs where you will get your books; you will then check out in an express line upstairs.

If you need to cancel an order, please call Labyrinth at 609-497-1600 and press 228. You will need to provide your student ID number.
