Linens and Bedding

Bowling Green State University has been offering the Residence Hall Linens program since 1993. Students at BGSU require specially-sized sheets, mattress pads and comforters to fit campus mattresses. These beds, which are longer than 76 inches, are intended to maximize student comfort.

When you reserve your college bedding through the Residence Hall Linens Program at Our Campus Market (OCM), you ensure the right size linens for move-in. The selection is larger than you will find anywhere else, at prices that are budget-friendly. Best of all, every Residence Hall Linens product available through OCM is guaranteed to fit and guaranteed to last from move-in all the way to graduation. Plus, a percentage of every purchase goes back to student programs for on-campus residents at BGSU.
