Operated by Barnes & Noble College, the bookstore carries all required textbooks, as well as supplemental materials, for each semester's course work. Textbook "buyback" is a service provided year-round to all students with any unwanted textbooks, however, the best time for selling back your books is during finals week of each semester. Along with new textbooks, students are also able to purchase used copies, as well as a growing selection of digital titles available for use with Barnes & Noble's premier study software, YUZU. Textbook rentals are also available online and in-store, saving students over 50% off the new book price. Returns are accepted during the fall, spring, and summer semesters for a full refund on textbooks returned within one week of the start of classes, providing the book is in the same condition and accompanied by a sales receipt. For more details about our textbook selection, and to place your textbook order, please visit our website at Don't forget to place your order online early, in order to get first dibs on rental and used textbooks!

The bookstore has a wide variety of merchandise, including a complete line of school and dorm supplies. The bookstore is also a source for medical reference, caps and gowns, class rings, health & beauty supplies, snacks, greeting cards, Simmons emblematic merchandise, clothing, and other gift items. All major credit cards, checks (with valid ID), Fenway Cash, and Barnes & Noble Gift Cards are accepted.
The bookstore offers opportunities for part-time employment to students seeking extra income. Students who work in the store receive a discount on purchases and can work in a temporary position at the beginning of the semester or stay on and work the entire semester.
