College Student Renter's Insurance
Whittier has partnered with College Student Insurance (CSI), a specialized property insurance program designed to address the specific needs of college students at affordable rates.
Occasionally, incidents such as theft, fire, flood, and other casualties occur on or around campus which result in damage or loss of student property. Whittier College does not carry insurance to protect a student's personal belongings and is not responsible for replacing these items. Therefore, the Department of Residence Life strongly suggests students purchase insurance or are otherwise able to cover these unexpected costs.
Project Glove Box (Condom Dispenser Program)
The condom dispenser program is a network of 38 condom dispensers located within all dormitory restrooms on Whittier College's campus. These dispensers provide free condoms to both residential and commuter students in the hopes of reducing on-campus barriers to obtain contraception. This program was started through the work of Bobbi Mendoza '15 and a generous donation of 16 condom dispensers and 40,200 condoms from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation in April 2014. The program is currently funded through the generous donations of Associated Students of Whittier College Senate.
