Students required to order books from Coop online

Last semester, the MIT Coop moved to a smaller location at 80 Broadway in Kendall Square. As a result, it will no longer carry a large physical inventory of books. 

According to an email sent by Mary Murphy of the Office of the Vice Chancellor to academic administrators Aug. 21, students will “order online and have the books delivered or pick the books up in the Kendall store.” The change will take effect beginning this September. 

Online orders for textbooks can be placed at The Coop will continue to carry apparel, accessories, gifts, and some books at its physical location, according to a letter from the Coop in Murphy’s email.
