Renter's Insurance

The Institute does not assume responsibility for loss or damage to personal property while living in Institute residence halls or apartments. After determining what it would cost to replace your more expensive belongings, check to see if your family homeowner's insurance would cover the loss. If not, we recommend that you purchase additional personal property insurance or renter’s insurance.

Insurance for renters is a form of homeowner's insurance. For additional information about homeowner's policies, please click here.

Forms + Guidelines

In the event that you are unable to fill out your housing deposit and application online, you may print the form below and send it in. Please note that the electronic form is always more immediate, however, your payment will be dated and time-stamped once we receive it.

Forms to fill out

Right now, all you need to do is fill out your housing application! You can do this electronically by going to myCIA or downloading the housing application below. Additional forms will be available to deposited students on May 1st as part of the online StART pre-orientation program.
