Though theft is uncommon in the residence halls, you can never be too careful. Whittier College assumes no responsibility for loss of property due to theft and recommends the purchase of personal property insurance to cover all valuable personal items while at the College. If you are interested in insuring your personal property, consider College Plus, the premier personal property insurance plan specifically designed for college students. Students may be eligible for personal property coverage under their family's homeowner's insurance. All students are reminded to maintain their room door locked at all times and engrave valuable items at no cost through the Department of Campus Safety.
