It is important to find out exactly what you are covered for as you may find that you require additional cover to protect all your possessions both inside and outside of your room.

Endsleigh's new student gadget bundles allow you to insure multiple gadgets anywhere in the UK and up to 30 days worldwide.  The following three bundles are available depending on the value of your gadgets.

  • £500 phone and £500 laptop or gadget
  • £750 phone and £750 laptop or gadget
  • £750 phone and £1,500 laptop or gadget

Endsleigh are the UK's No. 1 insurance provider for students and are the only insurance provider recommended by NUS.  Over the last 50 years they have used their expertise to help share their products, services, contents and tools around their customers' needs.

They understand that protecting and replacing gadgets quickly is hugely important to students, that's why they introduced their 24 hour* gadget replacement promise.  (If your item is lost, stolen or unrepairable they'll replace it within 24 hours - 1 working day of your claim being approved.)  Policy excesses apply.

When you move out of University accommodation then your residential insurance cover will cease and it is important that you make alternative arrangements for insurance, either with Endsleigh or another provider of your choice. If you have extended the basic University insurance cover with Endsleigh then you should contact them direct to discuss your personal policy.
