Announcing our new Renters Insurance!

College Renters Insurance

Whether it be a dorm or an apartment, everyone wants to to be sure they can relax at home (especially after sprucing it up with tips form these dorm decor blogs…). But do you have anything to keep what you have at home safe? Renters insurance can help you protect your personal belongings and liability, and we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new renters insurance product so we can better help you feel secure in the dorms or your apartment.

Whether you live on-campus or off, you may face risks that could affect your personal property or liability, like fire and theft. In 2009, the most recent year’s data available, there were more than 3,740 dormitory fires. That’s about one per U.S. campus (source). Also in 2009, there were 26,281 burglaries reported relating to college students – including more than 12,000 residence hall burglaries (source). College renters insurance can help protect against these risks.

We’re excited to debut our new product underwritten by the Markel American Insurance Company, Waukesha, WI, which we hope will suit the needs of college students living in the dorms or off campus, as well as young adults who rent.
