Moving into an ApartmentIt's time to move into that dorm or apartment nearby to your college. You're excited about the opportunity and you are ready to experience all that this new part of your life has to offer. But, one of the questions you may have is about protecting what you own. Should you invest in renters insurance while you are away at school? Chances are good you may want to consider what this type of insurance is, what it can protect, and why it may be a good fit for your individual needs.

Living on Campus

If you are living on campus, your school may provide some level of insurance protection for you, up to a limit. If you live on campus, such as in a dorm, your belongings may remain covered under your parent's home insurance plan. You can verify that with a call. However, these policies will have limits and you may want to consider adding a higher level of protection for your high valued assets especially if you own expensive televisions, gaming systems, and laptops.

Living Off Campus

Many of today's college students live off campus. That means they are living in traditional apartments and even rented condos. This is not a problem, but it is important to ensure your renters insurance is in place. You will likely need to purchase renters insurance in these instances. It will help to cover risks associated with your possessions, such as your furniture, your electronics, your clothing, and other items you own. It covers perils such as fire and theft. It also offers liability insurance. That means if a friend is hurt while visiting your apartment, your policy will help to pay for the costs associated with that individual's medical bills.

Now that you are leaving your parents' home, it becomes important to take steps to protect what you own as well as to minimize liability risks against you. That's not easy to do, but most renters insurance plans are affordable and an easy way to financially protect yourself from significant loss. Most college students should take the time to consider the benefits of these types of policies and all that they can offer to them.
