Amazon just launched the Off-to-College storefront, an online destination for all things college that makes shopping easier for parents and students alike.
The Off-to-College store has a wide array of products across all kinds of categories, like collegiate apparel, laptops, and pantry essentials. Prime Student members can also get plenty of exclusive deals on Off-to-College products.

As a (relatively) recent college graduate, I still remember the chaos that was shopping for college. I spent hours scouring Dormify, Bed Bath & Beyond, and West Elm for bedding and cute dorm room decor. I scoped the aisles of The Container Store for desk organizers and storage solutions I could fit under my bed. I visited almost every drugstore in town to stock up on basics like shampoo, conditioner, and tissues.
Whether it’s your first year or last, getting prepared to go off to college can take a lot of effort, and a lot of money. Luckily, Amazon wants to make college prep easier and more affordable for students everywhere. Amazon just launched the Off-to-College store, a convenient destination to shop all things college, from tech and school supplies to dorm decor and apparel.
The storefront makes it easy to find just what you’re looking for, or get some decor inspiration if that’s what you need. You can choose to shop by category and jump directly to bedding, desk supplies, or textbooks, or check out the “dorm-inspo” section to find styles curated by lifestyle influencers who are in college, too. Whether your style is modern, casual, or eclectic, this section will provide tons of inspiration to help you design your dream dorm room. You can even see all the products Ava Phillippe (Reese Witherspoon’s daughter) counts as her college essentials.
A Prime Student membership will get you access to exclusive savings and free one-day or same-day delivery on many items in the Off-to-College store. If you don’t have a Prime Student membership, sign up for a six-month free trial. If you like it enough to continue after six months, it will cost you $6.49 a month.
We checked out the storefront and picked out some of the best products across each category.
