New Student Checklist

The Residence Hall Association (RHA) would like to introduce you to Residence Hall Linens – a convenient source for ordering all of your campus living needs. RHA has partnered with On Campus Market (OCM) to provide TAMUG students and families with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have everything you’ll need for life in our residence halls. The Residence Hall Linens program has all your campus living needs, from sheets and comforters to matching towels, room decor and storage items. We also partner with On Campus Marketing to offer students Resident Care Packages throughout the year with a variety of package options. Family, friends and loved ones can take advantage of this service to give their student(s) some words of encouragement and some fulfilling snacks to help them get through the school year. Proceeds from this program go to the RHA and are used for programming within the residence halls.
