Property Insurance / Laptop Replacement

The University carries blanket property insurance on University property to protect against damage/loss of property. If an incident occurs involving University property, please contact the Public Safety department to file a report and Melissa Diaz, x5899. The responsible department pays a $1,000 deductible. Risk Management funds the excess (if any) of the deductible.

The University reserves the right to seek reimbursement from the authorized individual/department if an investigation shows misuse of said property or negligence was involved that resulted in the incident.

Please complete a claim form and submit to Melissa Diaz.

For damaged University-owned laptops, contact the Asset Management Team at The Asset Management Team will assess replacement cost and work with Risk Management on adjusting the claim.  The responsible department will be charged a $1,000 deductible, in addition to a $100 replacement fee.  If the claim is approved, Risk Management will cover the balance due to replace the laptop, less the $1,000 deductible and $100 replacement fee.

Replacement and reimbursement by Risk Management of stolen laptops / university property will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
