We strongly encourage our students to pursue renters insurance. You may arrange for renter's insurance through your own insurance company. MSUM does not insure personal belongings in student rooms. While we hope students will never need to file a renter's insurance claim, it is important to be prepared just in case.
A limited number of MicroFridge (combination refrigerator, freezer, and microwave) will be available for rental on a first come first serve basis. They are $75 per semester. On Move-In Day, please go to Snarr Hall (time and exact location TBD) to rent one. After Move-In Day, please go to the Housing and Residential Life Office in Ballard Hall.
