Insurance of Personal Computers in the Department-esc-only

We regret that personal computers housed in the Department are NOT automatically covered by the University's insurance. It is possible to include very expensive computers into the University's insurance with limiting movement and transit restrictions.

The University recommends that those with household all risk insurance policies should be able to extend this (at very small extra cost) to insure a personal computer in the Department.

All members of the Department are asked to most vigilant about all computing facilities. The University has to pay the first £2500 of any theft, and the Department 25% of this, and that only if it is proved that there has been forcible entry. Many computers are of course, less than £2500 in value and forced entry may not be able to be proved.
