The Pitzer College Dean of Students Loan Library makes it possible for students enrolled at Pitzer College to borrow course-related texts for a full semester. A list of available texts can be found here. Please note the library may not have texts available for all Pitzer courses, and the list might not include books recently loaned out for the current semester.
For more information on checking-out or donating texts, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 909-621-8241 or stop by Scott Hall 120 during normal office hours Monday – Friday 8:00am – 5:00pm. In order to check-out a text, you will be required to sign a Textbook Loan Contract which includes the Terms and Conditions outlined below.
Terms and Conditions
- Students must be enrolled at Pitzer College and in an applicable course utilizing textbook(s), in order to check out textbooks. If students withdraw from or drop courses, they are responsible for returning the associated book(s) within 24 hours of changing their schedule.
- Textbooks may be checked out at no cost for one semester to currently enrolled Pitzer students.
- Textbooks are available to participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Thus, the Office of Student Affairs makes no guarantees about book availability.
- The Dean of Students Textbook Loan library has a variety of texts, although there is no guarantee on textbook availability.
- Students are only allowed to borrow up to four books per semester. Inquiries will be considered on a first come-first serve basis. Extenuating considerations will be reviewed by the Dean of Students.
- Students are personally responsible for textbooks at all times.
- Students are not allowed to mark, highlight or write in textbooks.
- Textbooks must be kept in good condition and must be returned in the same condition as when checked out.

Failure to return the book(s) will result in a HOLD to the student’s account which will prevent future registration for classes or access to unofficial transcripts. Students who damage or lose books must purchase a new copy of the book(s) or will result in a charge to the student account for the replacement cost of the book(s).
- Students with a hold placed on their account are not eligible to register for classes or check out any additional textbooks until payment is received.
