Why do we Require Insurance Coverage?
Insurance coverage for all students living in residence ensures students and the University are protected from accidents or disasters. In recent years, some Canadian institutions’ insurance providers have chosen to hold students financially responsible for damages caused by students living in residence. Without insurance coverage students could be at great financial risk. A disaster could damage or destroy your belongings, and could also make you liable to your neighbours and your landlord, should their property get damaged. A mandatory insurance policy ensures that students living in residences at the University of Lethbridge will be shielded from this risk and liability.
