  • Monday to Friday:
    • 8am till 6pm
  • Saturday:
    • 9am till 1pm


The standard student contents insurance cover tends to insure your personal possessions & computer equipment on a new for old basis against:

  • Theft (whether or not someone physically breaks into your property)
  • Fire
  • Burst pipes
  • Storm
  • Vandalism
  • Flood
  • Explosion
  • Lighting

In the event of a claim, items will be replaced on a new for old basis regardless of age or condition except clothing, linen and rented household goods where a deduction for wear and tear may be made.

The insurance for students cover commences at the start of you tenancy agreement for personal possessions (or when your proposal is accepted, if later for optional extensions) and finishes when your tenancy agreement expires. You will then be responsible for arranging your own student contents insurance.

You may wish to look at the optional extensions if you require insurance cover for items outside of the property or have valuable items such as mobile phones, musical instruments, jewellery etc.

Important: We strongly recommend that you read your student insurance policy documents, fully, for your individual accommodation provider. These details can be found by selecting your "Accommodation Provider" below.

Is my University/ Accommodation covered?

If you're living in accommodation provided by your university and they have already arranged a basic level of student contents insurance cover under the Blockhalls insurance with Cover4Students, then you should receive a copy of the insurance documents or a summary leaflet in your welcome pack. They may also have links to our documents of insurance on their website.

You can check if your University/ Accommodation Provider has taken out the student contents insurance cover under the Campus Blockhalls Insurance scheme by selecting their name from the list below.

Don't worry if your University/Accommodation provider is not listed. We can still provide you with Students' Personal Possessions Insurance at a great price.

If you're living in Halls of Residence, our Student Possessions Insurance starts from just £15* per year.

*£15 annual premium includes Insurance Premium Tax and is only available online. Premium based on Personal Possessions/ Desktop Computer cover up to £2,000.

If you don't want to insure all your personal possessions or just want to look to insure your mobile phone or course fees, then please click the "Standalone Covers" to find a range of specialist student insurance porducts.
