Your education is valuable, and so is the personal property you have in your home and carry around campus! This comes with a lot of financial risk—what if your property gets damaged, stolen, or lost?
Fortunately, our college personal property insurance policy can cover your belongings while you are enrolled or employed* at a college/university, whether you are living on or off campus. We can insure your school supplies, such as laptops, printers, calculators, and other classroom materials, but we can also cover personal items, such as your cell phone, gaming consoles, sports equipment, clothing, jewelry, and more. This policy is applied at all times, anywhere you go.
*This policy is also available for faculty and staff!
Why should I get college personal property insurance?
This low-cost policy is a backup plan for everyday mishaps. For a college student, it may be difficult to replace an expensive loss—like a broken laptop or stolen calculator, for example—but a college personal property policy can protect you against those kinds of losses and more. This policy can give peace of mind to students while attending school and help them out in the event of personal property loss.
Not only can this policy benefit students, but it can also benefit parents.
If a student has a personal property policy, their parents won't have to make claims under their homeowners policy when something happens to their child's belongings. Additionally, typical homeowners policies can only cover up to $500 of property away from home. If you're a parent, have your child purchase this policy if you'd like to avoid higher premiums on your own policy and allow for more coverage on your child's belongings.
How much does college personal property insurance cost?
College personal property insurance can be as low as $72 per year. This is nothing compared to the cost of your belongings. Your smart phone, alone, probably costs about $600, your laptop costs at least $800, and your textbooks cost around $200. That’s already $1,600 for just a few of your everyday items.
