We are here to serve the needs of our students. We stock all of the textbooks and materials you will need for your classes, as well as a full line of school supplies, dorm supplies, small electronics, toiletries and all the Lafayette clothing and gear you’ll want to fit in on campus!  And you’re doing yourself a favor when you shop at the College Store.  Any revenue the College Store earns benefits you, the student, by helping to fund important programs like financial aid, academic tutoring, career services and many others services on campus.

At the Store, we welcome many common forms of payment (cash, checks, credit cards, gift cards), but we also offer a unique convenience for our students – the ability for students to charge purchases using their Lafayette ID.  If you use your student ID card to make a purchase, it will appear on your Student Account along with any other activity on your account.  Bills for any amounts due are generally posted online near the end of each month.

Textbook Reservations

Before you even know exactly which classes you’ll be taking, you can reserve your textbooks.  The College Store receives the list of textbooks you need for your Fall classes from the Registrar’s Office.  We can set aside those books especially for you so they are available when you arrive to campus.  The charges will appear on the Student Account bill that will be available at the end of August. All incoming students will receive an email over the summer with information on how to reserve textbooks.

Textbook orders should be submitted as early as possible.  Once you get to campus, come visit the Store in the lower level of the Farinon Student Center on Thursday, August 27th between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and we’ll have your order ready and waiting for you.  Be sure to bring a photo ID.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at (610) 330-5511 or email us at corsic@lafayette.edu.  We can’t wait to welcome you to campus.  In the meantime, follow us on Facebook by clicking on the graphic to the right.
