As you know, The College of Staten Island is transitioning to distance learning for students and to telecommuting and/or flexible working arrangements for its staff. Consequently, the CSI Bookstore is adjusting our current business practices to provide essential services to students, faculty, staff and members of the community. 

Hours of Operation 

Please be advised that office will be operating remotely during our regularly scheduled hours. We are constantly monitoring all communications received via e-mail and voicemail. You will receive a response to your communication within one business day. ​​

The CSI Bookstore is located on the first floor and second floor of the Campus Center. The store offers a wide variety of convenience items typically found in college bookstores. Reference books and best sellers are available on the first floor. Also on the first floor are the latest CSI fashions, greeting cards for all occasions, school supplies, snack items, magazines, newspapers, Metrocards, stamps, college rings and much more. If you don't see it, just ask. The staff will be happy to special order most items for you.  For your convenience the store accepts cash, checks, all major credit cards and Dolphin Dollars. Textbooks are located on the upper level of the store. In addition used books which are priced at a 25% discount are available for many classes. To ensure you are getting the correct books be sure to bring your class schedule when purchasing your books. If you need some extra cash think about selling your books back at the end of the term. If the book is scheduled for use during the next term, the bookstore will pay up to 50% of the price you paid for the book.

Refunds are available on most items, however certain restrictions do apply. Keep your receipt should you need to return an item.
