Personal Items Liability

Your University residential living experience, like your home, requires forethought about protecting personal belongings. Since HT assumes no liability for personal items that are lost, stolen, or damaged, students are strongly encouraged to purchase renter’s insurance to protect their belongings.

The University does not recommend or endorse any individual insurance company. However, the National Student Services, Inc., is an example of a nationwide student property insurance company.

We strongly urge all students and their families to contact their insurance agents, check homeowner’s policies, and to consider purchasing renter’s insurance.



HT does not provide storage of students’ personal belongings at any time. Students are strongly encouraged to store items at an off-campus, reputable storage company. Off-campus storage is at the students’ risk as HT does not recommend or endorse any company.

Fall residential students may keep belongings in their assigned room over the winter break at their own risk if they will be residents in the spring. Expensive items such as computers, stereos, and televisions, etc. must be taken home over the break or stored at a reputable facility.


Safety and Security

Do not leave room doors unlocked.

Do not prop open front doors to buildings or let anyone without a key or access card enter the building after you.

Do not allow anyone into the building if they are not your visitor and have not been properly signed in during visitation hours.

Immediately report persons excessively loitering around the building to Campus Safety.

Do not give friends your room key.

Do not walk alone after dark, and whenever possible, travel in groups.

Communicate with your roommate. Let your roommate know where you are going and with whom you are traveling. Establishing a buddy system is vital with regards to personal safety. Also, talk to your roommate about personal safety concerns you may have.
