HCC Bookstore

In keeping with the recommendations of the CDC and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, HCC is limiting campus foot traffic in order to maximize social distancing and keep our staff and students healthy. We are moving our student support services to phone, email, and other remote interactive options, including Zoom, Webex, and Google chat.

Whether you are a current or prospective student, please call 413.552.2521 or email the Bookstore and leave your name and contact information, and one of our staff will be in touch within 24 hours. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this transition.

  • Book advances are available!

Located on the second floor of the Campus Center, the store offers laptops, software, tech accessories, HCC-branded apparel, convenience products (including healthy snacks and gluten-free choices), backpacks, art supplies, and a wide variety of other supplies. Staff are also available in the store (or in the HCC Library) to assist students with online textbook purchasing.

Textbooks will be available on campus in the bookstore (CC 251) and online. HCC is partnering with Barnes & Noble to provide online book ordering via the HCC-Barnes & Noble website. Online orders can be shipped to a student's home or to the bookstore for pick-up. Students who need assistance with book orders can call or visit the HCC Bookstore during posted business hours.

The bookstore will refund in the original form of payment for textbooks and required course materials purchased at the bookstore if they are returned in the original condition with an original receipt and within the first week of classes. Within 30 days of the first day of classes, textbooks and required course materials will be refunded with an original receipt and valid proof of add/drop.

Book buyback has ended. Check this page again soon for future information.
