-Our Mission-

Provide students access to affordable textbooks through a partnership with the Care Center.


NextDorm is a Claremont McKenna College Textbook Loan Program initiative that provides access to donated textbooks for free.

We piloted this partnership from the beginning of Spring 2018 to the beginning Spring 2019 with much success (> 280 books rented in Fall 2018). Moving forward, our goal it to ensure this program is properly supported by the school so future CMC students can have one less thing to worry about at the beginning of each semester.

How It Works

Students (CMC only!)

It's simple! First go to our homepage and search for a book using either a title, author, or the book's isbn number. Then you can easily browse the selection and rent books free of charge from the Care Center!


NextDorm is made possible by Biniyam Asnake (CMC' 20), Dean Vince Greer, and the Care Center.
