We require every tenant to carry renter’s insurance to protect each resident’s personal property as well as to protect the resident should they be responsible for damage to the building or to another person’s personal property. Residents may procure their own renter’s insurance and must provide proof of that insurance policy to Management prior to move in. ALL policies must list College Town Communities as “Additional Insured” or similar so that College Town Communities is alerted should the policy lapse. If a resident does not have a preferred provider of his own, College Town Communities offers a link to an agency below with whom we have worked to create a policy that ensures the best coverage at the lowest rate. We’ve also attached helpful step-by-step instructions on exactly how to fill out the agency’s renter’s insurance application to make this process quick and easy. Additional links below offer more information about renter’s insurance.
No, all properties are privately owned and managed. However, all of our properties are solely rented to Kutztown University students.
