All University lease and contract holders are required to carry and maintain personal property protection (“renter’s”) insurance while living in University rental apartments and houses. Those with pets must also carry personal liability coverage. The minimum acceptable levels of coverage are $4000 in personal property protection for all contract holders and $100,000 in personal liability coverage for those with pets.
Residents may keep pets only after registering them with the Housing Office by updating their Personal Information in the housing system at https://housing.princeton.edu/ and providing proof of the required level of liability insurance. The University provides information on carriers for such coverage (One example is http://www.haylor.com ), but does not require the contract holder to procure coverage from any specific vendor.
