Campus Textbook and Supplies Resources
This subsidy supports students at the UO with purchases of textbooks and school supplies. The application is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be open until funds are exhausted or for the first three weeks of each academic term, whichever comes first. Applications will be reviewed by the Basic Needs Program and you will be notified via email with a result.
Please note: Due to an overwhelming number of applications the funds have been exhausted for fall 2023.
Before you purchase a textbook, see if UO Libraries has a copy first! You can search and check for print or e-book copies of your assigned textbooks on the UO Libraries website.
