If you need to choose a class, seek accommodations for a disability, get tutoring, print a paper, or something else, we have the resources (both people and facilities) you’ll need.
From your first days on campus, a faculty or staff advisor helps guide your academic plans and desires. Thinking about an internship? Trying to balance extracurricular activities? Your advisor is a text, phone call, or an email away.
Student Help and Resource Exchange (SHARE) is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to consult on reports of concerning behavior. This team approach is an addition to the long-standing support resources already in place.
Disability Resources actively works with roughly 15 percent of Oberlin’s student population, offering accommodations and tools for self-advocacy.
All students have access to free tutoring services and workshops. Many are sponsored by specific offices and or academic departments.
The Oberlin College Bookstore is on the corner just west of the intersection of Main and College Streets. The college-bookstore division of Barnes & Noble manages the bookstore, which was once the Co-op Bookstore. Stocked with textbooks you’ll need for class, it also has official college merchandise: T-shirts, caps, sweatshirts, hoodies, bibs, pennants, and even socks. You’ll also find items for your residence hall including lamps, stationery, clocks, energy-efficient light bulbs, fans, and bedding items.
The Oberlin College Bookstore has a textbook rental program and a textbook buy-back program. Yet before you hand over the credit card, find out if the textbook is part of the bookstore’s e-book collection. If so, you may download the textbook to your PC or Mac and access the contents with an e-Reader.
The Oberlin College Bookstore is part of the Barnes & Noble College Booksellers partnership, a comprehensive service-oriented bookstore that includes more than 600 campus bookstores nationwide.

The Mary Church Terrell Main Library, housed in the Seeley G. Mudd Center, is the central library facility for Oberlin College and the primary location for materials in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics, computer science, and general interest works.
It is also home to the Robert S. Lemle ’75 and Roni Kohen-Lemle ’76 Academic Commons (main level), which provides research, information, technology, and learning assistance to Oberlin students and serves as a space for academic programming and community on campus.
