Personal Property Insurance

Georgetown University does not insure the personal property of its students. No theft or damage claims will be reimbursed including theft of laptop computers and electronics.

All University students living in oncampus housing or townhomes should refer to their occupany agreements and/or handbook if questions arise regarding personal property. Each agreement contains language outlining responsibility for loss of personal property.

Many students and families rely on homeowner’s insurance to cover any property loss that might occur during a student’s time at Georgetown. Because these policies vary widely, and often do not fully cover such losses, we are providing insurance information as an alternative to homeowner’s insurance. While the University does not administer this program, we strongly encourage student review and evaluation.

National Student Services, Inc. (NSSI), provides personal property insurance to university students nationwide, including those studying abroad. This full-service, low-cost plan is both comprehensive and competitive, and is designed to specifically protect the personal property of students, faculty, and staff living in residence halls or off-campus apartments or houses.

Interested students seeking an application or additional information should contact the company directly at or (800) 256-6774.

The University does not benefit in any way from the sale of such policies. Students communicate directly with NSSI and should contact them regarding all insurance-related business.
