While MMC does not require residents to carry renters insurance, many residents and their families choose to purchase a separate insurance policy, or verify coverage under a current homeowner’s policy.
In the unlikely event of a fire, theft, water damage, or natural disaster, Marymount Manhattan College does not accept responsibility for any damage incurred to personal property. This includes rugs, computers, books, and other personal items. For this reason, the Office of Residence Life recommends each resident invest in renters insurance. This is a way to protect the resident’s personal property should unforeseen loss or damage occur while in the residence halls.
