This program created for URMIA delivers extensive coverage from the major personal property risks students, faculty, and staff of our member institutions face while offering both very low deductibles and the most affordable annual premiums. We also offer an optional liability coverage to protect our policyholders from damages to third parties for which they may be held responsible.

URMIA's Student Property Insurance program is administered by Gallagher, a leading global insurance broker. Gallagher has extensive experience in the service of higher education institutions and their students. The company is a long-time innovative, driving force in the student property protection market, creating and administering products to manage the unique risks of the space.
