Renter's Insurance

We strongly encourage students acquire renter's insurance (a.k.a. personal property insurance) for their belongings. Some homeowner's insurance policies may cover belongings of a student living on-campus, so parents should check with their insurance company. You can also purchase a renter's insurance through various insurance companies.

FIU and the Department of Housing and Residential Life is not responsible for a student's belongings in the event of damage, fire, sprinkler discharge, hurricanes, etc., per the terms and conditions of the Housing Agreement (see section 20, entitled, liability of the agreement terms and conditions). Students are encouraged to obtain their own personal and property loss insurance.
