Is Pace responsible if my personal items are damaged?
While all cases of property loss and theft are dealt with in conjuntion with our Office of Safety and Security, there are times that the University will not cover the replacement cost for items that are damaged or lost. We strongly encourage all residents to get an insurance policy that will cover. One of these policies is offered by a company that we have advirtised in the past, National Student Services Inc (NSSI). View an example of their policies (PDF). You can check with your local insurance company as well to see if you are covered.
