What to bring

 

Tenant insurance

Students must have tenant insurance with a minimum of $1,000,000 in liability coverage while living in residence.

Tenant insurance will cover fire, flood, damage and theft on your personal items. It will also cover residents who are found liable for a fire, flood or other large damage to a residence hall.

Insurance can be purchased from any number of vendors, or through you or your family's pre-existing insurance coverage.

Students needing insurance can also submit a Insurance Request form on our website - which will put you in touch with one of our vendors, Southside Insurance.

Refer to the Building Information document (Tenant Insurance Information) for the specific details your insurance company needs.
