Insurance policies are basically the responsibility of students or PhD candidates. However, all students and PhD candidates enrolled at the University of Basel are insured automatically and free of charge for the economic consequences of an accident with permanent damage (invalidity). Beyond this, the university does not offer any discounted rates for insurance policies. The Social Services can provide additional advice. Students in exchange programs should contact the Student Exchange Office.
We recommend supplementing the existing insurance coverage for the university premises with private full coverage that is independent of time and place. AXA Versicherung offers a very attractive option with a current annual premium of CHF 43.50.
