Residential Life Personal Property and Student Injury and Sickness Insurance


  1. Residential Life Personal Property Insurance. A voluntary plan of insurance for personal property is available to all students in the residence halls. Information on this program is available in the Residential Life Administration and Facilities Office at University Commons II. The University recommends that students determine if they are covered on their parent’s homeowner’s insurance, and if not, obtain their own personal property insurance. The University of Louisiana at Monroe is not responsible for loss in the Residence Halls due to theft, fire, water, heat, or other causes. The University is not responsible for personal property that is lost, stolen or damaged in or on residence hall properties.
  2. Student Injury and Sickness Insurance. Enrolled domestic students have available to them a plan of group student injury and sickness insurance. This plan is mandatory for all international students enrolled at the university. In the fall semester, applications and policy information are mailed directly to the student from the insurance company. In the spring and summer semesters, enrolled students may obtain the application and policy information from the Office of International Students located in the Library, Room 201-D. ALL QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE INSURANCE COVERAGE MUST BE ANSWERED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY BY TELEPHONING THEIR TOLL FREE NUMBER. At the time of registration, the University will automatically assess international students the insurance premium each semester or enrollment period(s) unless they can provide proof of adequate government-sponsored coverage or personal insurance coverage including medical evacuation (benefits to be paid for the evacuation of the insured person to the home country) and repatriation (benefits to be paid for preparing and transporting the remains of the deceased’s body to the home country). An embassy letter or personal insurance policy must be submitted to the Office of International Students for review and approval by the Director each semester or enrollment period; and if an international student requests exemption of the cost and subsequent enrollment in this mandatory insurance plan.
  • Proof of insurance must include the guidelines of repatriation and medical evacuation.
  • Insurance policy must be reviewed and approved by the Director of the Office of International Students, before the 10th day of the Fall or Spring semester and  the 5th day of Summer I or Summer II.

  • For the Exchange student requesting exemption,  proof of personal insurance and/or supporting documentation must be received, reviewed and approved by the Director, fourteen (14) days prior to the program enrollment period.
  • Failure to submit proof of insurance within the deadline may result in the international student automatically being assessed the insurance premium each traditional semester.
