Renter’s Insurance – Deal for WSU Students


Recently, WSU Housing Services partnered with Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc. to offer renters insurance.  While you may be covered under your family’s homeowner’s insurance, claims against homeowner’s insurance can be expensive, especially compared to renter’s insurance.   Renter’s insurance will cover your belongings if they are accidentally damaged, stolen, vandalized or suffer a loss from water, fire, smoke, etc.   If a loss occurs, WSU is not responsible.  We strongly encourage you to purchase renter’s insurance as unfortunate situations can and do happen.  Here are some common situations that can occur:

1. Water damage from sprinklers going off

2. Fire, smoke, explosion, windstorm

3. Theft

4. Accidental damage

5. Vandalism

To purchase renter’s insurance, please visit www.studentinsuranceprograms.com/pp. You can also reach our broker that handles this plan (Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc), at 866-535-0456 or student@haylor.com and they’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you enroll.
