Insurance Needs We strongly advise dorm students to ensure 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 ensure this is in place. Alternate Housing Students Students living in rental accommodations out of dorm need content insurance for their belongings.
