Insuring Your Belongings
It is imperative that students safeguard their belongings. We encourage all students to have adequate insurance, either through their homeowners or securing renter's insurance. Many homeowner policies allow for a rider for renters insurance. Please discuss this matter with your insurance agent prior to your arrival to campus.
