The Cube is a TWUSA run used bookstore located on campus in the Reimer Student Centre. It was created to provide a service for students wishing to sell and buy used textbooks.
Acting as an intermediary, the cube takes in books from students wishing to sell and sells these books back to students wishing to buy. The allocated money is then transferred back to the student seller after a 10% servicing fee. All profits made from the cube are put in the TWUSA endowment fund for future use.
The search function allows students to scan for available books by title, author, and course code. After finding a particular book, the student must select the book and put it on hold by clicking the hold button. Once the book is on hold, the student must come to The Cube and pay within 24 hours or else the book is released from the hold, and other students may purchase it. Purchases cannot be made at The Cube without holds, so it’s extremely important that the student put the book on hold via the student portal prior to coming to The Cube. Holds may be reapplied if the student is not able to pick the book up within the 24-hour time frame. It is important to note that we only accept cash and there are no returns. For pick up of Cube money visit the TWUSA office in Douglas Hall Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:00am, 11:30am-1pm and Wednesdays from 11:30-1pm.
