Care Packages and Linens

Attention Parents and Family!

The Office of Residence Life knows that going to college is a transition for your student and for you. Because of this, we provide two helpful resources for you to utilize; the Care Package Program and Linen and Bedding Program.

Care-Package

Care Packages gift

Our Care Package Program is a great way to remind your student that you support them. You can send one package or multiple packages throughout the year. Each care package is delivered to your students Residence Hall for pickup. Money raised from this program supports residential student events through Resident Student Association and National Residence Hall Honorary.

Care Package Shipping Information

After you purchased a care package for your student, the following process takes place ensuring delivery of the package.

  1. Once the package is shipped from the warehouse, a shipping notification is sent to the person who purchased the package.
  2. The warehouse sends all care packages to one location on campus and the Office of Residence Life sorts them and distributes them to the proper residence halls.
  3. After Residence Life has sorted the packages, an email is sent to the student notifying them that there is a package on the way and they should check with the front desk.
  4. Once the package is ready for pick up, a slip is placed in the students mail box as a second reminder that there is a package for them.

Please note: It takes a few days between packages being shipped from the warehouse and being sorted/delivered to the student. 

Linens

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. Extra-long sheets, extra-long mattress pads, extra-long comforters, pillows, décor and storage solutions and all other products are backed by this guarantee. And using the OCM.com website is EASY!

Helpful tip: We recommend that parents and students respond early, in order to have the widest selection of college bedding to choose from. Doing so will guarantee your first choice color or pattern and help you make great progress on your college shopping checklist.
