I believe getting an education is one of the most important times in a young person’s life and I want to help them get the most out of it. I’m confident our products will make things a little more convenient so students can spend greater time on other important things.

Residence Linens, the original Canadian solution for the many items required for students to move into residence, and make a home away from home, was founded by Debbie Robertson in January 2004.

After sending two boys off to University, I was inspired to create a service which would help simplify the chaotic process required for moving into residence. The service was first offered close to home for me at the University of Toronto. In 2006, with suppliers firmly in place, more schools were added. Residence Linens now serves over 20 schools.

My mission has always been to offer the best customer service to parents and students, while at the same time providing great quality at an affordable price.

Also unique to the Residence Linens collection is the school crested polar fleece throw which I hope gives new students a head start on their school spirit.

I work closely with the schools to deliver the best service possible for them and their community. Our testimonials show how much the service is appreciated by students and their families. After sending my sons off to university, I realize the stress involved in getting your student ready for school. Count on me to make your life a wee bit easier and to provide your sons and daughters with a better night’s sleep.

A portion of all sales are returned to our partner schools in order to benefit students.
