Williams Bookstore information for incoming students and families

 The Williams Bookstore is now open to the public Mon-Sat from 10am-6pm, with state mandated occupancy restrictions, safety and sanitary measures in place. If you come to the bookstore we recommend that you wear a mask.

Beyond great deals on college textbooks, The Williams Bookstore offers students academic discounts on computers, dorm room essentials, Williams-branded clothing and gear, scrumptious “care packages,” and of course a wide range of fiction and nonfiction titles. Here’s everything you need to know:
