When preparing your children for college, you may be contemplating what classes they will be taking more than thinking about insurance. If you are leasing an off-campus apartment for your college student, it is important you protect their possessions. In college, many students bring very expensive belongings with them such as their electronics, furniture, clothing and other valuables. You may think your homeowner’s insurance policy will cover a college student’s belongings who live off-campus. However, homeowner’s insurance policies usually do not cover belongings, which is why it is essential to purchase a renter’s insurance policy.

 

Renter’s Insurance usually includes:

 

1.    Personal Belongings Coverage: Coverage for student’s belongings if they are stolen or damaged.


2.    Liability Coverage: If the student is found legally responsible for someone else’s injuries or accidental damage to their property including his or her landlord.

 

3.    Additional Coverages: If your student brings certain expensive items and would like coverage for those items.
