Insurance Needs

Dorm Students

Dorm students are strongly advised to ensure that their content insurance needs are covered either through a family plan or through separate insurance arrangements. Student possessions are not covered under the institution's insurance policy. Some homeowner policies will cover students while in residence, but it is the responsibility of the student to see that this is in place.

Alternate Housing Students

Students living in rental accommodations out of dorm will need to have content/possession insurance for their belongings.
