Bicycle or laptop been stolen? What now?
Theft cover or damage cover is provided within University grounds. E.g. Your bicycle. The insurance covers general items such as clothing, helmets, books, glasses, stationary and laptops that might be stolen during a lecture. The protection is only valid when items are placed in safe places such as your locker. Items that are left on campus are not covered. Items are covered up to €250.

Please note: In cases when a designated area is available for storage, students must keep bicycles there.
