to help you


Rent a Textbook

In case you haven’t already figured it out, textbooks are expensive! This is especially the case for courses that require you to have one textbook for just 4 months (basically all of them)! Therefore, Concordia has a great service where you can rent all of the books required for major courses for up to a 3-hour time span. Check it out at the Library’s Webster Room (LB 2). All you need is your student ID card! Sign into the course reserves website using your MyConcordia netname and password to see if your courses’ textbooks are available.

Rent a Calculator

An initiative begun by the John Molson Academic Committee, JMSB now rents out calculators free of charge. All it takes to rent a calculator or i-clicker for the whole semester is your student ID, a signed contract, and a cash deposit that you will get back when you return it. Drop by MB 4.106 to rent one of the following:

  • Texas Instruments BA II Plus (Financial Calculator) – $50 deposit
  • I-Clicker 2 – $40 deposit
  • Sharp Advanced (Scientific Calculator) – $20 deposit

Rent a Charger

Forgot your phone charger at home? Stuck at school until your 5:45-8:15pm class ends?  No worries, you can rent a charger for your iPhone or Android at NO CHARGE! All it takes is a student card for every rental.

The CASA Conference Program (CCP) is an initiative brought forward by the Commerce and Administration Students’ Association (CASA-JMSB) aimed at enhancing students’ undergraduate experience beyond the classroom. The program provides students with the opportunity to attend various conferences focused on their fields of study or personal interests by covering their delegate fee. We believe that students can develop passions and enhance their learning abilities by getting to hear directly from panels of industry professionals, engaging in stimulating workshops, and growing their personal and business networks.

Students can apply using the application form found below. Please note there is one application in the fall semester and one in the winter semester.
