Protect your belongings be sure to have Renter's Insurance

July 6, 2021

It is advisable to protect personal belongings in the instance of flood, fire, theft or other unexpected events that may occur in or around university housing.  OSU does not provide insurance coverage to student occupants and students/guests are responsible for their personal belongings and damages that result from either purposeful or accidental actions. 


In order to reduce the financial burden of replacing personal belongings after such unexpected events, residents are strongly encouraged to obtain appropriate coverage, including renter’s insurance.  OSU does not endorse any specific insurance company and recommends that you consult with your current insurance provider regarding appropriate coverage options, including renter’s insurance.
