eCampus is the official bookstore of Mount St. Joseph University. At the Mount-branded eCampus website students can shop for all the textbooks they need for their courses. eCampus provides the following options:

  • Rent print textbooks
  • Purchase used or new print textbooks
  • Purchase or rent e-textbooks
  • Purchase textbooks from the eCampus Marketplace
  • Purchase access codes for required course materials

(Note: purchasing options may vary; not all options will be available for every textbook.)


Students should sign in to eCampus with their Mount username and password. This is the same username and password for myMount, MSJ email, Blackboard, etc. If you need help with your password, please contact the Mount ISS helpdesk.

Shop by Course
Students can shop by their course schedule on the MSJ eCampus website. Students can either select the "Shop Textbooks by Course" link, or log into myMount and follow the link to eCampus from their course schedule. Shopping by course guarantees that students will see all available purchasing options for their required textbooks.

Price Matching
eCampus price matches with other major online textbook vendors, including Amazon, Chegg, and Barnes & Noble. Consult the Price Comparison Tools box below to help you get the best price on your textbooks. More information about the eCampus price-matching guarantee can be found on the eCampus website.

Students can select to have their textbook orders shipped to the eCampus delivery hub located in the Mount Roar Store in the Harrington Center.

(Shipments under $35.00 shipped to home addresses are a $5 flat rate.)

Return Policy
