On Campus

The Penn Bookstore

Located in the heart of campus, the Penn Bookstore offers a unique assortment of products and services to specifically meet the needs of Penn faculty, staff and students, as well as the surrounding community. In addition to being the primary source for Penn's required course materials, guests of the store will find a wide selection of general reading books along Penn branded apparel and gifts. The store frequently holds author events, many by Penn faculty members, which are all free to attend and open to public. A large, wireless-internet café  featuring both convenience items and freshly prepared food and beverages is located on the second floor and adds to the comfortable and welcoming atmosphere of the store.

Computer Connection
