Chartwells Campus Dining Services

Purchase Bookstore

Make sure to visit the bookstore throughout the school year. Located right behind the library, the bookstore offers great rates on textbook purchases and rentals, class supplies, Panther gear, snacks, coffee and more. Visit them in person or check out the Purchase Bookstore website. You can also view the Purchase Bookstore facebook page here.

The More Store

The campus convenience store is located in Fort Awesome and accepts Dining Dollars. Stocking snack items, microwave meals, F'real milkshakes, and more, the store also carries health and beauty products and offers dry cleaning services. In addition, you'll be able to find a plastic bottle redemption machine.

The More Store is reusing /recycling plastic bags that are clean and tear free for immediate reuse for store purchases. Our goal is to reduce new plastic bag consumption through our store by at least 50% within the first two years. That would mean reducing the number of new plastic bags consumed by over 25,000.

Anyone that uses their own bag on purchases over $2.00 will receive a ten cent discount.
