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, here is what you will need to do:
- 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.
- Renter’s insurance should cover your personal property located at U of U at Block 44, and general liability. General liability coverage may be satisfied by a student providing proof of coverage under a parent’s homeowner extension. Renter’s insurance should name student and the University of Utah (Housing & Residential Education) as additional interested parties on their renter’s insurance policies.
- Proof of renters insurance for U of U at Block 44 should be submitted through our website, here:
