Students living in college managed accommodation are automatically covered by a Room Contents group insurance scheme provided by Endsleigh Insurance. The annual premium is paid by the college.
The main items covered are (subject to an excess payment):

Restrictions, limits and conditions apply. Please note in particular that with the exception of bikes (see above) the policy does not cover any items outside your room e.g. laptop computers taken to University departments and libraries. However it is possible to extend the cover to include these and other items on payment of the appropriate additional premium.
Please ensure you are familiar with the full details of the policy, which are available on the Endsleigh website at www.endsleigh.co.uk/reviewcover, the college’s Policy number is HH1071.
The above group insurance scheme does not cover students living in private accommodation, who are therefore strongly advised to arrange their own cover.
