Why get student insurance?

If the things you take to uni aren’t covered by your parents’ insurance, they could be costly to replace if they’re lost, stolen or damaged. Our student insurance lets you enjoy uni life with the comfort of knowing your possessions are protected in your term-time home.

  • What’s covered

    Your contents are covered while they’re in your student home and when you’re moving in and out. Optional extras are available for an additional fee. There’s more cover available if you need it too – add personal items, sports equipment, bike or gadget cover, for a policy that’s truly shaped around you.
