Property Damage / Theft
Faculty and Staff Personal Property
The University’s property insurance covers an employee's personally-owned items when those items are considered essential to the employee’s duties, and the items are damaged or stolen on University premises. For example, certain books that a professor has personally purchased and brought onto University property as part of his/her curriculum or research may be covered.
Suffolk expects each employee to have his or her own insurance coverage for valuable items, such as a rare book or manuscript.
The Suffolk University mail room acts as a receiver only for University-owned or -leased property, and will not be responsible for any lost or damaged personal items shipped to the University.
Suffolk University's insurance does not extend to the personal property of its students, and reimbursement will only be considered when the damage/loss is a result of the University's actions. However, limited insurance against damage and/or theft is provided to RESIDENT STUDENTS through a fee already included in their residence assessment. RESIDENT STUDENTS should see this page of the Undergraduate Student Handbook for CAS & SBS students for details on coverage, making a claim, etc.
