In-person Appointments

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these unprecedented times and can’t wait to welcome you back into our store on campus when it is deemed safe to do so.

As we continue to look for ways to improve our service to students in these unprecedented times, HCC Bookstore is taking scheduled visits to campus for bookstore needs by appointment. 

Appointments are limited and on a first come, first serve basis and can be made if you do not have the ability to order your books online, need to return a rental, or have another specific need that otherwise couldn’t be met by placing your order on our www.howardcc.bncollege.com website.

If you would like to schedule a visit to our campus bookstore you can sign up here. Appointments must be made 24 hours in advance of scheduled visit so that we may plan for your visit accordingly. Students who plan to visit campus must fill out the COVID-19 screening survey on the day of their visit.

Students should park in LOT C and must enter the RCF through the main entrance on the second level of RCF as well as have proof of survey completion either with completion email or QR code from smartphone.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the bookstore at 443-518-1400 or sm8178@bncollege.com
