The Protection You Need for the Ones You Love

Even the most responsible university or college student is unable to plan for the unexpected.

APOLLO’s Student Tenant’s Insurance helps protect students and their belongings from the unexpected. Here are a few examples of how a student rental insurance policy can help financially cover your child and their personal property.

Fire and Smoke Damage

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire – and where there’s fire, there’s damage. To recover the losses, insurance helps look after you from spark to finish.

Water Damage

Despite our best-laid plans, pipes burst, septic pumps fail, and bathtubs overflow. Insurance gives you the helping hand you need to cover any property damage and restore your child’s space.

Additional Living Expenses

This includes any costs of basic daily living and maintaining good health. They’re covered by insurance when your child is forced out of their space by the unexpected.

Crime and Vandalism

Protect valuables from theft or damage. Insurance typically covers break-ins or damage to belongings, and compensates you to be able to either repurchase or repair personal property.

Personal Liability

There are countless scenarios that can end up hurting you financially like somebody falling down stairs and suing you. Protect yourself and your child from potential out-of-pocket costs by making sure you have the right liability insurance in place.

What Insurance Does Your Child Need for Student Housing?

With so many different types of insurance coverage available, it can be hard to know what to look for. Here’s what you should consider when selecting a policy.

Coverage Limits

Coverage limits are the maximum amounts your insurance company will cover due to lost or damaged belongings, personal liability, or additional living expenses.
The primary coverage included in APOLLO’s Student Tenant’s package is Contents insurance up to $150,000.

The Deductible

The deductible is the amount you’re required to pay when you make a claim in order to activate the coverage in a policy. For example, our student renter’s insurance policy offers a deductible up to $2,500.

Scope of Policy

Using the cost of your coverage limits and deductible, you can determine the approximate price of your policy. In most cases, the higher your coverage limit is, the higher you’ll pay monthly or annually to be insured. A few other factors that can affect the price of your policy include:

  • The location of the student rental property
  • The type of building the rental unit is in
  • Previous insurance history
