Uninsured Organizations

Uninsured University sponsored organizations or external organizations are able to secure coverage for their events or programs via an insurance program available to Villanova University facility users/renters. The policy provides general liability insurance and protects both the facility user and Villanova University against claims by a third party who may be injured or experience property damage or loss as a result of participating in the event.
