Q: How do I log in to the bookshop site?

A: You do not need to log in to the site. No need to use your Bryn Mawr or Haverford id and password.  Just start adding items to your cart and continue to checkout.  You'll have an option at the end of the transaction to create a bookshop account, but an account is not necessary to buy from our site.

Q: How do I use my OneCard to pay for purchases?

A: Unfortnately, our site is not set up to accept OneCard payments.  But there is a workaround.  If you know you have sufficient funds to cover your purchase, then follow these steps:

1) Choose gift certificate for payment method
2) Enter this "dummy" number in the gift certificate number field (nclude the G and the space): G 7777777
3) Include your student id number -- the number on the front of the card -- in the ID number field on the checkout page.
4) Add a note in the comment field saying "please charge my onecard."



The bookshop operates on reduced hours during the summer (Commencement through Customs Week) and other times when most students are not on campus (Fall and Spring Break, etc.).  The store is closed completely from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day.  Please visit our homepage for additional details, and email us at if you have any questions.

The bookshop closes when the college is closed for inclement weather and other special circumstances.  Please visit for information about campus closures.



Return Policy – General Merchandise

General merchandise may be returned within 30 days for a full refund.  A receipt and/or order number is required for refund. Unless the item is factory damaged or defective, it must be in new and resalable condition, and must not show any signs of wear.  Tags/packaging must be included.  All refunds will be made in the same method as payment. Clearance items are final sales.

Please send returns to our mailing address:

Bryn Mawr College Bookshop

Return Policy – Textbooks

New and used textbooks can be returned during the text return period at the start of each semester.  Please refer to your receipt and the store blog for more information about returns and other current text policies.  After the text return period, all text sales are final.  New books must be returned in perfect condition.  Shrink-wrapped bundles and loose-leaf pages must be in the original shrink-wrap.  Once bundles and loose-leaf pages are opened, they cannot be returned, so be sure that you are taking the course before opening the shrink-wrap.  Access code purchases are always final.



Shipping – General Merchandise

We ship most general merchandise orders within two business days of your order; ship times may be longer during college breaks, especially Winter Break (just before Christmas Day until just after New Year’s Day). Shipping fees are clearly displayed on the checkout page. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is ready for shipment.


Textbook Order Processing

Prior to the start of semester, we accept advance reservations for texts through this site.  Orders will be available for pick-up in the bookstore two days before the start of classes.  Please contact us if you would like to make special arrangement for early delivery of advance text orders, or if you'd like your order shipped to you.  Once the semester starts, text orders will be available for pick-up on the next business day after you complete your order on this site. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is ready for pick-up.
