Once you submit your order, you may request delivery to the Arvada Campus. Please give us one business day and call the Arvada Campus to ensure your order is available. Information: 303.914.6010.

The bookstore also carries school supplies, calculators, printers, headphones, electronics, backpacks, greeting cards, hardcover and paperback best-sellers (discounted 20%), imprinted RRCC gift items and clothing, along with snack food and beverages. Barnes & Noble gift cards may be purchased and redeemed. Bookstore services include special orders for books or merchandise not in stock and textbook buyback.

The bookstore performs computerized textbook buyback EVERY DAY. The best time to sell your textbooks is at the end of each semester. We are very competitive; let us give you a buyback price quote!
