All University Village residents are required to have property damage liability insurance before they move in. This is different than traditional renters insurance. As their guarantor, you have the option of adding this to your current homeowner's policy (just be sure that the name and address match your resident's information at the University Village). If that doesn't work for you, then University Village can assist your residents in obtaining TLL insurance through a third-party vendor.
