August 13, 2018 – Many young Oklahomans are college-bound and in the midst of a major life transition along with their families. AAA Oklahoma finds that while focusing on dorm set-up and meal plans, important adjustments to insurance are frequently overlooked.
A Consumer Reports article says dorm rooms can be a hot spot for thieves. Two roommates can have as much as $6,000 worth of electronics alone – laptops, tablets, smartphones and gaming systems – as well as other items of value in their small living space.
According to U.S. Department of Education data of crimes reported on college campuses, theft of personal property is the most common crime, followed by motor vehicle theft.
“College students living away from home should know they may have limited coverage under their parents’ insurance policies,” said AAA Oklahoma spokesperson Leslie Gamble. “Before leaving for college, students should check to see what risks and liabilities are covered.”
