The University insures only the property it owns or leases. UF’s insurance does not cover personal property that is on campus or is used for University business.

It should be noted that on no occasion is the University responsible for the loss of private property due to criminal acts. Sorry, but if your backpack or laptop is stolen on campus, the University cannot compensate you.
