Bookstore

Hillsborough Community College Bookstores are located on each campus, and sell all required textbooks and course materials as well as school supplies, backpacks and much more.

The Bookstore provides three convenient options for you to purchase your books:

  • In-store: Visit any of our campus locations (below) to buy your books in-person.
  • Online with in-store pickup: Purchase your books online and avoid shipping costs by picking them up at a campus location.
  • Online: Purchase your books online and have them shipped directly to your home. Please note: Shipping fees of $17 per order apply. UPS usually takes three or four days to deliver your order. Orders placed during the weekend will be processed on Monday morning.

Students who have a third party sponsor (State Voc., Vet. Voc, WIA, etc.) paying for their textbooks can start charging their textbooks (in store or online). Please note that the third party sponsor must contact HCC and make arrangements for a charge account to be set up prior to charging.
