Student insurer goes extra mile to welcome freshers to uni, including partnership with YouTube star and accommodation providers


Student insurer, Endsleigh Insurance, has been working with accommodation providers and YouTube star, Joe Tasker, to launch Endsleigh Live – a series of online events to welcome students to their new university accommodation. Endsleigh realised that 2020 freshers won’t have the typical arrivals experience, so wanted to do something to help. The events also aim to give freshers the low-down on student insurance and will take place across the 17th and 28th September 2020.

Working with student engagement specialists, Campuslife, Endsleigh are bringing students something completely new. The events will provide a unique and interactive way for students to find out everything they need to know about student insurance in just 15 minutes.

Insurance is commonly misunderstood among students. Common uncertainties include whether they’re covered on a parent’s policy and what the difference is between insurance and a warranty. Understanding excesses, how to make a claim and other insurance topics will all be covered in the events to make students’ lives as simple as possible. 

YouTube star, Joe Tasker, will be hosting the eight online events across 17th and 28th September. Joe will be going on the journey with students to find out what’s included in their cover, what isn’t and what to do if anything were to happen to their belongings. Endsleigh Live will also feature a live Q&A with Endsleigh’s student insurance experts - meaning fewer questions for students to answer further down the line.

Head of Education at Endsleigh, Oliver Barrow, has said:

“As students can’t have the normal arrivals experience this year, we’ve been working really hard to try and give them the next best thing. With most freshers’ activity taking place online in 2020, we’re confident that Endsleigh Live will help students feel welcomed into their university accommodation and also become more familiar with the importance of student insurance.” 

The livestreams will be hosted live on Endsleigh’s YouTube and Facebook, as well as directly on key accommodation provider channels.
