Loss or Damage to Personal Property

There are many instances when employees bring personal property to campus for personal use. This property may include but is not limited to art, office furnishings, laptops, bicycles, cameras, musical instruments, books, plants and photographs. Personal property brought to campus is the sole responsibility of the owner. The repair, replacement, or reimbursement of personal property is not considered to be the responsibility of the University. This would also apply to students or visitors who bring personal property to campus for personal use. The University’s insurance programs do not provide insurance coverage for personal property whether lost, damaged or stolen on campus or off campus while on University business. However, an employee has the right to file a claim against the State of California for loss or damage to personal property against the State of California through the Government Claims Program. For further information, contact the Campus Risk Management office.
