Theft, Loss, or Damage of Personal Property

The Office of Housing & Residence Life encourages residents to purchase renter’s insurance

Renters Insurance is recommended for students to protect their property in their rooms. The University is not responsible for loss or damage to the personal property of residents. It is recommended that each resident check their parent or guardian’s homeowner’s policy to see if it covers property in the residence hall. If a student’s personal belongings brought on campus are not covered under a homeowner’s or tenant’s policy, Renters Insurance should be purchased. Many companies provide insurance at a nominal cost.


  • If for some reason, your plans change and you decide not to live on campus, you must contact the housing office ASAP and complete the housing cancellation form located at Please make sure to adhere to all University refund policies regarding housing withdrawal found on the Bursar website and the housing contract.
