Contents Insurance

Your contents. Covered.

By partnering with Endsleigh, the No.1 student insurance provider, we’ve arranged contents insurance for all our students staying with us in our residence at no cost to you.

It is important all students confirm their cover to ensure you understand what is and isn’t covered. Plus you’ll also be entered into a prize draw specifically for Urbanest residents, courtesy of Endsleigh!

Visit confirm your cover to see:

  • What is and what isn’t covered
  • Key exclusions – where cover isn’t provided
  • Policy excess – the amount you pay when you make a claim
  • How to make claim
  • Personalise cover

We understand students have a limited budget so Endsleigh have launched brand new, unique student insurance options. They have been designed to cover the risks that you may encounter whilst living in student accommodation and away from home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a car park at the property?

It’s very hard to park in London as there are congestion and parking fees, however we are very close to public transport links.

Will I need to pay Council Tax?

Students are exempt from council tax, so no, you do not have to pay it. You will though have to provide us with a Council Tax Exception letter, which you can get from your universities admin department in the first few weeks of the Autumn term.
