Swaapr Brings Peer-to-Peer Textbook Rentals to College Campuses

Our company mission is simple: We want to make your college experience more affordable and fun. We believe in transparency, integrity, and customer satisfaction at the highest level. This company was founded by the three college students who were tired of getting ripped off by companies that capitalize on college students. So we built a service with the college student in mind. We offer peer to peer rentals as well as allow students who wish to share skills that with one another on one’s college campus.
