Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., outside the academic year

Payment Methods

In the brick-and-mortar store, the Hampstore accepts cash, credit and debit cards, and the Hampshire OneCard for payment of items. The on-line store accepts all major credit and debit cards, Paypal, and Apple Pay.

All fully enrolled students whose accounts are up-to-date with the student accounts office may charge purchases at the campus store using their OneCard; these charges will appear on the student's billing statement and must be paid within 30 days. Employees of the College who use their Hampshire OneCard for payments will have the charges withheld via payroll deduction.


The College has partnered with Amherst Books in downtown Amherst for textbook purchases. Students may shop at Amherst Books and use their OneCard to pay for purchases in the same manner as the HampStore. Charges will appear daily on their Hampshire College Student Account.
