(Milwaukee)--Marquette students have their move-in day on Wednesday, August 20. And while insurance might be the last thing on their mind, the experts say it needs to be a high priority when going off to college.

Parents, having your child adequately covered could spare you a lot of money and maybe even heartache if you plan ahead. Realize you don’t need renters insurance for the dorm since a homeowner’s plan will likely cover it. But you might want to consider a personal articles policy, insuring specialized items like computers, sports equipment, or muscial instruments.

If you live off campus, in an apartment, it’s advised to get renters insurance. Also, if the child’s permanent address is the same as the parents', there’s no need to get extra car insurance coverage. And, if your child doesn’t take a car to school, you could actually get a discount because of it.
