RENTER’S INSURANCE

Duke University is not liable for damage or loss of personal property kept in the resident’s assigned space or in other areas of University housing. Because the University does not provide property insurance, residents are encouraged to secure their own personal property insurance. All Duke students should consider purchasing renter’s insurance to protect their personal property in the event that it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Even if a student is a dependent under his or her family’s insurance, the student’s personal property may not be covered. Talk with your family. They should check their policy or contact their insurance agent to see what coverage you have and if renter’s insurance is right for you while away at school.
