Taking electronics or a car off to college? Make sure they're secure and properly insured, auto club says

Where the most expensive thing in many college dorm rooms in bygone years was a boom box or perhaps a stereo system, today’s students carry with them electronic devices whose value easily runs into the thousands of dollars. But insuring those computers, smart phones, and video games includes wrinkles that may trip up the unwary, according to the American Automobile Association, which also cautioned parents to check their insurance and teach their budding collegians about basic vehicle maintenance if they’re taking cars to school. “College students living away from home should know they may have limited coverage under their parents’ insurance policies,” said Dan Scroggins, the managing director for AAA Insurance. “Before leaving for college, students should check to see what risks and liabilities are covered.” Dorm dwellers’ personal possessions may be covered under parental homeowners’ or renters’ policies, but coverage of expensive electronics may be capped, a special student endorsement may be required, or items may have to be itemized.
