Insurance Information

Part of college life includes taking suitable precautions with regard to personal belongings and being alert to suspicious activities within the residence halls. Regardless of these precautions, loss of personal property is sometimes inevitable.  Our Student Handbook (pdf - 7.98 MB) clearly states that Winthrop University is not responsible for personal property owned by students, faculty or staff.
