Renter's Insurance
Students are strongly encouraged to obtain renter's insurance.

Some Home owners policies will cover a dependant student while in school.
Check with your insurance company to see if this applies for you.

LHSON, BHCS, BUMC, Baylor University nor the Marquis will provide insurance. This is the sole responsibility of the renter!
