It seems the university should have insurance for this and pay it but also the phones were new and under insurance if anything happened to them so that should cover the phones too. This has happened on school grounds and they are responsible for the break-in.

Oh sorry, I forgot to answer your question. No, this has not happened to me but to someone I know it did.

I've never had anyone invade my place of residence with the intent to rob me. I don't think that the guard would be responsible for the bill for the two cell phones that were stolen, although the comp an y might fire him for neglect of duty. If the company is kind hearted, the girl's cell phones might be replaced, but I expect that replacement will fall on the girls because they failed to buy insurance on them.

It is not something that has happened to me I am thankful to say, but we have insurance here so should anything be stolen which would help financially but not emotionally of course, it is an awful thing to experience. In the case you stated I would imagine that the company would have some kind of insurance too and may be able to cover the loss of mobile phones and any medical treatment needed; I hope so anyway...

I have never had that happen to me while I was asleep. Someone did break in our home while we were at work though. Our insurance company covered our losses.
