Insurance cover


All students living in UWE Bristol-managed accommodation have basic personal possession insurance cover included within the cost of the accommodation fee.

You can extend basic cover to include protection for course fees, rent, criminal assault, legal expenses, and to cover valuable items outside of your accommodation for accidental damage and theft anywhere within the UK – such as laptops, mobile phones, cycles, cameras, iPods, jewellery and other portable items. There is an additional charge, payable directly to the insurance company.

Endsleigh basic cover overview

Core contents insurance for students through Endsleigh Insurance Ltd is included in your rent. You don’t have to wait until you’ve arrived to review your cover. In fact, we recommend that as soon as you’ve booked visit the Endsleigh site to confirm your details and contents.

If you’re planning on bringing items of high value such as a laptop, television, bicycle or even large musical instruments, we recommend upgrading your cover, which you can also do via the Endsleigh website.

Basic insurance means your belongings are covered against theft, fire and flooding. The policy does not cover accidental damage, or anything that is lost, stolen or damaged, outside of your room.
