The CSM College Store serves as the official bookstore for the College of Southern Maryland, supplying educational tools, such as books and supplies, as well as, a variety of other merchandise and services. In addition to providing textbooks and course materials that support the college's educational programs, we carry general interest books such as reference materials, study aids, and current fiction and nonfiction. We also offer a wide range of general merchandise including clothing, computer software, basic school/art/photography supplies, and novelties.
The College Store collaborates with academic departments through the effective use of current technology to ensure accurate and timely availability of textbooks and course materials. Our products and services are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the college community.
We believe students are our principal customers and the primary reason for our operation and faculty/staff are our clients who depend upon our services. As a self-supporting operation of the college, we employ professional and ethical business practices to achieve high-quality customer service.
