Welcome to the Coop
Established in 1882, the Coop serves as the campus store for the Harvard and MIT communities and is the official bookstore for these storied academic communities. The Coop stores are located near or on the campuses and are stocked with almost everything you'll need on or off campus and offer the largest selection of officially licensed Harvard and MIT apparel and gifts anywhere. Please visit the Coop online or at any of our 5 retail locations.
The Coop is not just the campus store, but it is deeply rooted in the tradition and the fabric of the Harvard and MIT communities and has a long history of providing financial and in-kind support to various student groups and initiatives. The Coop, as a cooperative, is owned by its members but open to all. Members of the Harvard and MIT communities are eligible to join and, as members, enjoy a 10% member discount.
The Coop has enjoyed the distinction of being the oldest and largest college bookstore in the United States for many years and still operates as one of the largest collegiate retailers.
