Near campus are many stores where students can purchase what they need for their rooms in the residence halls and for their classes. There are stores such as Target, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, Costco, CVS, Walgreens, and grocery stores such as Safeway, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe's.

Also, the Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Mall is in Santa Clara so that is another option for shopping.

Please keep in mind that most places will require a form of transportation (i.e. car or public transit) to get to and from the stores.
