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, please contact Edward Saler in ITS who 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.
