With UNC students off campus, libraries and UNC Student Stores are adjusting their return policies.
The decision comes in response to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Student Stores manager Michele Gretch-Carter said. Many students have moved off campus since the University closed down in response to the spread of the virus.
“All rental textbooks were originally due on May 5, the last day of finals,” she said in a statement. “The rental due date has now been extended to June 15 to ensure students have enough time to return their materials.”
First-year Samantha Beecham said she rented her Calculus III textbook from Student Stores. But Beecham said she has no idea what to do with the book when classes end.
“I’m just waiting until the end of the semester to give it back," she said. "I don’t think I can go back to campus to hand it in. Maybe I will send it in a package?”
