Will homeowners insurance cover a collapsing ceiling?

It really depends on what is causing the collapse of the ceiling, but it is very likely to be covered unless the collapse occurred due wear and tear or negligence.

Can I use my parent's address if my college zip code is causing my rate to increase?

The zip code where the vehicle is primarily kept is what needs to be used for insurance purposes. Depending on your age, company, and residential state, you may have been able to stay on your parent's policy, but since you now live off-campus you will have to use the address where you live.
