Insurance solutions for the education community


We provide cover for a wide range of education requirements including:

  • Student accommodation
  • International student travel
  • Commercial needs


Building on our 50 years of expertise we can work with you to ensure your organisation and students are protected, now and in the future.

Student accommodation insurance

30 years ago, we developed a block insurance proposition for halls of residence at universities and colleges across the UK. We understand your needs as well as the needs of your students, providing competitive and comprehensive products for both property owners and managers.

We are the market leader within this sector, insuring over 300 providers and 500,000 students with block possessions insurance.

In addition to the above, we also provide a wide range of other specialist block products for universities and colleges which are shaped to your requirements:

  • Property insurance
  • Rent guarantee schemes
  • Home emergency schemes
  • Engineering and inspection cover
  • Office and professional indemnity insurance
  • Properties in the course of development/construction

"UNITE and Endsleigh have a very strong relationship. We work together to understand our customers, their lifestyles and to anticipate their future needs and desires so that we can achieve our respective business development strategies and maximise the common ground between our businesses. UNITE and Endsleigh's insurances continue to add to the security, wellbeing and peace of mind for our UK and international students."

International student insurance

Endsleigh were the first in the market to offer specialist cover for students who are resident outside of, but studying in, the UK, and we now insure over 20,000 international students annually.

Our international student insurance gives you and your student’s peace of mind whilst they are at, or travelling to and from, their university or college. The cover includes cancellation, curtailment, medical emergency and lost baggage. With a range of flexible distribution models, our partners can either provide this cover for all students or sell it as an additional "opt in" product, whereby your organisation can earn commission on each sale.

We are extremely proud of our long standing partnerships, providing tailored solutions to universities, colleges and organisations throughout the education sector.



"We have been very happy with the cover provided by Endsleigh for our students. From minor losses to the serious incidents, the support has been very professional and the cost very reasonable."

Richard Simpson, ELTC Director, Sheffield University

Commercial insurance

We have provided products and services to the education community for many years. Our close ties with NUS have allowed us to speak to and work with many organisations in the higher education sector. Our approach is consultative, and our team of commercial experts will firstly understand your needs, then design and recommend a programme to meet them.

We are able to provide advice and guidance across the following:

  • University insurance - including property, contents, personal accident, public liability and employers liability
  • University letting agent insurance - including block cover for accredited landlords
  • Student union insurance - including cover for sports teams
  • Private accommodation providers - including property and professional indemnity insurance
  • Unions and membership organisations

"I have worked with members of the Endsleigh team over the past 15 years at a local and national level. The Endsleigh values are always seen in the professionalism and efficiency with which they deal with students and students' unions. I have placed insurance with Endsleigh via different organisations and always found their approach is to add value wherever they can. The Endsleigh staff build confidence as they recognise the opportunity to improve a policy, find cost savings and deliver honest and open communication."
