Liberty Mutual Renters Insurance: Spend a Little. Protect a Lot.
Liberty Mutual has partnered with the UIAA to offer you exclusive savings on quality auto and home/renters insurance.* If you rent your apartment, house, or condo, you probably need insurance. Remember, your landlord isn't responsible for your belongings, or if you need to find another place to live, or any personal liability you may face if someone is injured in your home. Renters Insurance covers your valuables—such as TV, laptop, and cell phone—for theft or damage at home, in your car or on the go. Call 888-435-4566 or visit Liberty Mutual to get a free quote.
*Discounts and savings are available where state laws and regulations allow, and may vary by state. To the extent permitted by law, applicants are individually underwritten; not all applicants may qualify.

Alumni Insurance – Through the UIAA's partnership with American Insurance Administrators, alumni can participate in a short-term health insurance program.

Alumni Records – Ensure that you continue to receive important information from the university by updating your record. You can also use the Find-A-Friend service to locate former classmates.
