Emergency Contact Information
Renters Insurance

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, all students residing in on-campus housing must have the option of identifying a person whom the University will notify if the student is determined missing by the Department of Public Safety or the local law enforcement agency. Columbia provides this option to all students. The contact information will be confidential, accessible only to authorized campus officials and law enforcement, and may not be disclosed outside a missing person investigation. More information about the Missing Student Procedure provision is available in the Public Safety Annual Report. Students can update the contact information on SSOL.

All Columbia Residential tenants are strongly encouraged to obtain renters insurance to protect against losses of personal property resulting from theft, water, or fire damage. Most policies, in addition to providing you with coverage for property losses, will also provide you with some personal liability coverage. Read more here.
