Housing License Agreement
The 2016-2017 Housing License Agreement is a one year agreement to live in University Sponsored Housing. This includes deposit and credit deadlines as well as policies such as breaks in regards to living in housing.
For students who have questions regarding canceling their Housing License Agreement, the Housing License Agreement: Appeal Process can be found at www.newhaven.edu/myhousing. After a student submits their appeal to the Housing Refund Committee, the committee will vote on all aspects based on the proper documentation that was submitted. A student will be notified of the committees decision via their UNH student email account.
Theft and Safety: It is important for students to protect their personal property (stereos, cameras, computers, books, furniture) as the University is not responsible for the personal property of residents. This includes, but is not limited to, items in rooms, in storage, being delivered on the student’s behalf, in route or under any circumstances. It is strongly recommended that students have personal property insurance as the University does not provide insurance coverage for these items.
There are several options for obtaining personal property insurance which you should confirm by contacting your family’s insurance agent. A parent’s homeowners or tenant insurance may provide coverage; check the language of the policy to see if you need to add a rider. As a suggestion, please refer to National Student Services, Inc (NSSI) regarding coverage for students living on-campus and for those renting apartments off campus (1-800-256-NSSI). They can also be reached on-line (http://www.nssi.com). Students should keep a complete inventory of their personal property and serial numbers as a way to prove ownership in the event they need to file a claim with an insurance company.
