Request for Reimbursement
Texas A&M University does not carry insurance on student's belongings, and is not responsible for damage to or theft of any personal property in campus residence hall rooms or University Apartments (see Housing or Rental Contract). Therefore, the Department of Residence Life and Corps Housing strongly encourages students to either:
1. Make arrangements with their parent's or guardian's homeowners insurance company to insure coverage for personal belongings or;
2. Purchase a personal articles floater policy or;
3. Purchase separate renters insurance.
In some instances, a parent's or guardian's homeowners insurance will cover damage to property in a state owned facility (such as a residence hall or University Apartment), but this is not a universal truth. Consult with your parents or guardians and their insurance agent to decide whether or not personal belongings in residence halls are already covered, or if coverage can be added to the existing policy. While reviewing coverage, be sure to review any applicable deductibles. If not covered, or if coverage cannot be added, ask the insurance agent about purchasing a separate renters insurance policy or personal articles floater policy.
Renters insurance has coverage similar to homeowners insurance, and is very affordable. Texas A&M University does not endorse any particular insurance company; however, research has shown that most independent insurance companies can find an underwriter that will write renters insurance policies for residence hall rooms and university apartments.
Per University Rule, a student may make a request for monetary reimbursement arising from alleged personal injury or property damage incurred. Please fill out a Request for Reimbursement and turn in to Lounge E
