Housing & Residential Education offers the following optional services to students living on campus. These optional services are available to help you expand your space, cater to your lifestyle or give you peace of mind. You can sign up for these services through Housing U in CIS upon reserving your room, in person in the HRE office, or by sending us an email. Please note, not all services are available in all communities. HRE shall provide utilities (electricity, gas, water, sewer, trash). Technology connection options (internet, wireless, internet television, cable television) differ by housing location (see the housing application for details).
What about renter’s insurance? Renter’s insurance is required at U of U at Block 44, but Housing & Residential Education encourages all students to explore getting rental insurance regardless of whether you live on or off campus. Renters insurance typically insures your personal property for loss or damage while living on campus, and many times companies offer discounted student renters insurance plans. Renters insurance can also be available through some homeowners policies as a rider. If you choose a space in U of U at Block 44, you will be required to provide proof of renters insurance before moving in (August 16th). This may be an additional cost outside of HRE Billing for these spaces, renters insurance cannot be purchased through HRE. Proof of renters insurance for U of U at Block 44 can be submitted through the Housing U application in Section 4.
