Association of Residence Halls

The Association of Residence Halls, or ARH, is an organization within Housing and Dining Services that promotes social, educational and cultural programming for and by the residents. ARH also promotes interaction among the residence halls, develops citizenship through self government, and stimulates interest in campus activities and residence hall affairs. Most importantly, ARH strives to leave a lasting legacy of excellence for future residents and students.

Residence Hall Linens at Our Campus Market

Kansas State University Residence Hall Linens Program

Kansas State University has been offering the Residence Hall Linens program since 1993. Students at Kansas State University 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!

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.



“After receiving your literature, I went to the stores and compared what it would cost me, the stores prices for everything you offered in 'The Complete Campus Collection' totaled over $295.00. I came straight home and ordered your package! Thank you for all the help. ” - B. Kelly, parent

“This is an exceptional value. I know from past experience that dorm beds are impossible to fit - I'm glad this service is available.” - N. Lawrence, parent of first-year student
