Personal Property Insurance

Students have a large investment in personal property, such as textbooks, computers, tablets, televisions, DVDs, DVD players, radios, cell phones, cameras, calculators, refrigerators, and clothing.  Each year, college students lose millions of dollars’ worth of personal property through theft, vandalism, water or fire.  Samford University is not liable for a student’s personal property should a loss occur on campus.

All students, especially those who live in residence halls, should insure their personal property either through their parent’s homeowners insurance or through a private insurance policy.  The University has established an insurance program through National Student Services, Inc.  This insurer provides personal property insurance for students at over 1,000 colleges and universities. For more information on student personal property insurance see or pick up a brochure in the Residence Life Office, University Center 106.
