Our Story

College is a big step for students and their families, and a very special, but sometimes stressful time. OCM is here to make taking that step a little easier. For nearly four decades, OCM has been the officially approved partner for universities across the U.S. and serves as a one stop shop for dorm room necessities, helping students and their families with the exciting college years, from move in until graduation and even beyond.

Endorsed and sponsored by more than 900 college campuses and 1,500 campus organizations, OCM products turn every dorm room into a home away from home. Student and parents can easily shop our new product lines and new website for affordable, college-approved linens, dorm décor, XL twin bedding sets guaranteed to fit, bath sets, themed care packages, graduation frames, and so much more.

Giving back is top of mind! Every OCM purchase goes a step farther: it sends dollars back to your school, for campus & housing programs and enriching your college experience. Each year, we also donate to local charities and non-profits, such as United Way, American Red Cross, Women in Need shelters, Humane Society, even victims of Hurricane Irma in Puerto Rico. Over a dozen agencies in all!

We’ve made college easier and more affordable for over 6 million families – and we’re here to help yours! Trust OCM to help with your entire experience. College is a big step – let's take it together.
