First, the type of housing you are in and second the terms and conditoins of your parents' Homeowners Insurance policy. Let's talk about the second one first. If your Insurance Professional advises you that your parents' Homeowners' policy provides extended coverage that is adiquate to cover your personal belongings in an on campus dorm, then in that case, it is not critical that you obtain a separate renters insurance policy. If the Homeowners policy does not provide this extension or, more commonly, if you are housed in off campus rental unit or house, then obtaining a renters insurance policy would not only be smart, it may also be required by the buildng owner or management company from whom you are renting.Answered on March 27, 2015+01 0+1 this answerflag this answerview more answers by Tom Sheehan

Your parents' agent should be able to provide you with a Certificate of Insurance that will satisfy the Landlord in any capacity for the liability coverage they are seeking. You are living there as a temporary student, so your parents' coverage is extended to you temporary residence.Answered on May 5, 2015flag this answer
