The 2016-2017 Community Living Standard highlights residents’ responsibility regarding their belongings and renters insurance:
The University is not responsible for possessions lost or stolen from your room, apartment, or from any other area of the residential community. Keep your keys with you at all times and lock your door and windows when you leave your room/apartment. Do not store your belongings outside your room or window. Items placed outside your room will be discarded without prior notification. We recommend you to obtain renter's insurance.
Students who decline to purchase personal liability insurance through the housing portal may obtain renter’s insurance through their own family provider or seek their own provider independently.
