Drew University prides itself on being a safe and caring environment, but like your home, protection of your personal belongings still requires careful consideration. In the event of water damage, fire, theft, or any other cause of damage or loss, Drew will not cover any of your personal possessions.

Drew University does not assume responsibility for students’ lost, stolen or damaged property. We recognize the importance in ensuring the safety and security of your possessions—while Drew does not endorse any particular insurance company—we strongly encourage all families or individual students to contact an insurance agent regarding enrolling in some form of renter’s insurance to protect your valuable possessions including computers and electronic equipment.

We constantly stress the importance of students taking their security of their possessions into their own hands by encouraging them to lock their doors, not letting unknown people into the building and reporting any suspicious behavior to Public Safety.
