liability insurance for registered campus organization events
The University of California has created an insurance program to cover Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs) for most on-campus events. Events covered by the policy are paid for by the University. However, RCOs are responsible for making sure their events are covered. Off-campus events are NOT covered by the University insurance policy and you are strongly encouraged to attain insurance for your events . The University has created an easy way for you to apply for insurance. **
Most activities sponsored by campus organizations like yours are "low-risk" and will be covered by the insurance policy that the University of California Office of the President (UCOP) will be paying for if you are a RCO with the Student Life & Leadership Office (Formerly the Office of the Dean of Students). Activities or events that are held off-campus or are deemed "high risk" will need to be registered and you will be given a quote on a premium that your organization has the option of purchasing. As you plan your event, it is essential that you make the appropriate insurance arrangements. If your organization is an affiliate member or local chapter of a regional or national organization, you may be able to attain insurance from them. Please contact your organization's regional or national office to see if they will cover your campus organization. If it is possible to attain insurance coverage from them, they must name the Regents of the University of California as additionally insured.
Please check the to see if the event type that you are planning to hold on campus is covered under the university's insurance policy. Student Center & Event Services will require a certificate of insurance before reserving space for your organization on campus.
