Online Store

All items available in the campus store are available on the Bennington College Online Bookstore, including books, supplies, snacks, Bennington swag, gear, and more.

If quarantine, student orders can be delivered to the outside door of the student's house. Include student cell phone number, house name, and room number in the online order details.

Course Materials

  • Undergraduate students: Course material and textbook information posted by faculty is visible in Bennington College's academic information system, Populi—just click on the name of the course in your schedule, and make sure you're on the "Info" tab. Students are encouraged to review these pages well before the beginning of term, and to order all required course materials from a vendor of their choosing, before the term begins. Although a limited number of books will be available for each class in the on-campus bookstore, these are primarily intended to facilitate the add/drop process. 
  • Required supplies are also listed on the course page in Populi. Course supplies will be in stock and available for purchase in the on-campus bookstore at the beginning of term.
  • Postbac premed students will receive ordering information directly from the program’s director.

Art Supplies and Notebooks

General art and school supplies, as well as supplies that are specifically requested by faculty members for classes, are available on campus in the Bookstore. Paint, canvas, specialty paper, tools, brushes, and more are in stock throughout the term.

Course Packets

Course packets are available in the Bookstore.

Bennington College Authors

A wide selection of books authored by Bennington College faculty, alumni, and students are available on campus in the Bookstore.

Lenovo Campus Computing Program

As a convenience to our community Bennington College and Lenovo has created a computer hardware program of pre-built systems. Laptops, Ultrabooks, and accessories are available at our online site.

Check Cashing and Laundry Quarters

Bennington College students, staff, and faculty can cash checks in the Bookstore up to $200. A Bennington College ID card is required. Department Petty Cash checks can be cashed for larger amounts.

Quarters are also available in the Bookstore for student laundry. 

On-campus Book Buybacks

The Bookstore will not be offering book buybacks this term. The Bookstore buybacks were through online book buyers, so students are encouraged to look online for similar options such as Abe Buybacks and Books can be dropped off at the bookstore for donation to other students. The store donates all unused books to community organizations and groups. 

Gift Certificates (add money to student's ID card)

When you want to give a gift that can be used in the Bookstore, you can go to online and add funds to a student's Bennington ID Card. All you need is the student's 5-digit ID number and their last name. If a Bennington ID Card is lost or stolen, account balances are automatically transferred to a replacement card.
