JYY is putting the members’ home insurance in Soihtu’s housing locations out for tender

The Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä, JYY, is looking for providers for the insurance package covering its operations. The continuation of the home insurance contract offered to the residents of Soihtu will be evaluated at the same time.

The current home insurance applies to JYY members living in Soihtu’s apartments and offers only secondary limited protection in a narrow selection of damage situations. The security provided by the insurance is low in relation to the price of the contract, and the student’s own insurance contract is always a more beneficial solution as far as insurance coverage and price are considered.

More detailed discussions on home insurance have taken place at the meetings of JYY’s Board of Directors and the Student Village Residents’ Committee. The final decision on the insurance package will be made based on the call for bids during the summer. Soihtu will inform its residents when a decision has been made on the continuation of the insurance contract.
