The world-famous Harvard COOP, founded by Harvard students in 1882, enjoys the distinction of being the oldest and one of the largest collegiate bookstores in the United States.

The Coop Book Department features the most titles and the most diverse selection of popular and academic topics to be found in the Cambridge/Boston area.

It is the only bookstore in the country to stock hundreds of titles by Harvard Faculty Authors, and Harvard Business Publishing.

It also has the largest selection of officially licensed Harvard logo clothing and gifts anywhere.

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.
