How Endsleigh protects the things you can’t afford to be without…

At university your gadgets are essential for studying and for keeping in touch with friends and family, so it makes sense to safeguard them 24/7. The student room insurance provided for you focuses on covering some of the items in your room for theft, fire and flood risk. You will be able to download a copy of your insurance certificate after you have accepted your offer of accommodation.

Laptops, tablets and phones are not covered outside of your room so you may wish to consider taking out additional cover to protect these essentials.

Endsleigh is the No 1 student gadget insurance provider and is recommended by NUS, because they understand students’ insurance needs and university life. Their cover keeps your gadgets protected wherever you and your gadgets are, matched with a 24 hour* laptop and mobile phone replacement promise once your claim is approved.

Protect your laptop, phone and other gadgets by choosing one of Endsleigh’s value packages. Check your cover on Endsleigh's website.

(* 24 hours represents 1 working day from Endsleigh approving your claim.)
