As noted in your housing agreement, the University is not liable for damages or losses that occur to the personal property of students such as those resulting from ﬁres, smoke, burst pipes, theft, vandalism, sprinkler head discharges and more. For this reason, the University strongly recommends that residents consider purchasing renters’ insurance to protect their possessions in the event their personal property gets stolen or damaged, whether on or off campus.
Though rental insurance can be purchased from any source that you choose, Residential Services has identified GradGuard College Renter’s Insurance as a preferred provider for our students. The company was selected for their comprehensive, student-focused packages and their ability to meet the University’s risk management requirements. With the GradGuard College Renter’s Insurance plan, personal items that are stolen or damaged by a covered cause of loss can be replaced, subject to a $100 deductible and includes worldwide property coverage, liability coverage and no penalties for students who file claims . All students are eligible for coverage. For more information, visit their website GradGuard College Renter’s Insurance.
