Illinois Wesleyan University expects students to arrange for insurance of their own personal property. The University does not carry insurance to cover students' personal property, and the University is NOT liable for the loss or damage to any residents' personal property, except in cases in which it is found that the University has been negligent. Families should review their homeowners or tenant insurance policies to determine whether coverage is extended to students' personal property while attending college. In addition, the University annually distributes information regarding the availability of insurance through National Student Services, Inc. Questions may be addressed to the Office of the Vice President for Business and Finance (309-556-3022).
