Insurance Requirements

Mount Holyoke College requires all organizations who host events or conferences on campus to carry appropriate insurance (minimum of $1,000,000 General Liability) for the purpose of indemnifying the College for any loss resulting from bodily injury or property damage which may arise from their operations, employees, or agents of the organization. The organization must provide a copy of this insurance certificate, adding The College as an additional insured to their General Liability, Auto Liability and Excess insurance policy. If the organization subcontracts any part of its operation, including counselors, all subcontractors must be covered by all policies or individually carry equal coverage. The organization is responsible for verifying coverages of all subcontractors.

This Certificate is due no less than 30 days prior to the starting date of the event or conference and the policy must remain in effect for the entire length of the event or program.

The University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) Tenant and User Liability Policy (TULIP) provides an online insurance option for all persons, groups or organizations using the facilities at Mount Holyoke College.  You may access this program to purchase insurance coverage for events on campus, however you are not required to purchase insurance through this source.
