Protecting Personal Property on the Yale University Campus
Yale University does not assume responsibility for personal property belonging to students, faculty or staff.
The University urges all students to obtain insurance to protect against the unlikely occurrence of loss or damage to their personal belongings.
Although coverage may be available through homeowner's policies, the deductible may be high. For convenience, the University has made available a personal property insurance program underwritten by Harleysville Insurance, and administered by Haylor, Freyer & Coon. This comprehensive program provides affordable personal property coverage with low deductible options, and easy enrollment for all Yale students, faculty & staff. All transactions and communications are directly between the Yale student, faculty or staff member and and HFC or Harleysville. The University is not involved in the administration of this program at all. Although the University makes this program available, it encouranges the purchaser to review all options, including the use of homeowner's insurance, to make an informed decision.
