The UTS LSS understands that the cost of textbooks each semester can be overwhelming. In order to combat this we have introduced the Textbook Rental Scheme (TRS). Under the TRS, a UTS Law Student can loan a textbook, paying half the total RRP to the UTS LSS. Upon returning the textbook in good condition, half of your initial payment will be returned.
The TRS operates on a first come first served basis and is limited by the availability of textbooks in the UTS LSS inventory.
If you would like to apply please fill out this application form.
We ask that you treat the textbooks loaned under the Scheme with respect, as they remain property of the LSS. This includes no highlighting and/or marking the books deliberately. This may mean you forfeit the cost usually refunded to you upon returning the textbook, or refusal to loan books in future at the discretion of the Equity Director in consultation with the VPSJ.
It is the responsibility of the recipient to reasonably cooperate with the Equity Director to organise the return of the textbooks at the end of exams of the semester the book was loaned for. Failure to do so may also inhibit the offender’s eligibility in future.
The textbooks are only on loan for a single semester. If they are required for subsequent semesters a new application must be made to the Equity Director.
Please direct any question you may have to the 2017 UTS LSS Equity Director, Ushna Bashir, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
