Insurance Requirements for Facilities Users

All third-party users of Villanova's facilities ("Facilities Users") are required to sign an agreement for the use and provide an insurance certificate, regardless of whether a fee is a charged for the use. When reserving space through The Inn, Connelly Center, Conference Services, or for Athletic facilities, the applicable area will provide the appropriate agreement. When reserving other space on campus, you will need to secure the Facilities Use Agreement and insurance certificate from the Facilities User and send to Insurance and Risk Management for review at least one week prior to the event. Many times insurance certificates need revisions to evidence our insurance requirements, so you are encouraged to submit the information as soon as you receive it.

The Facilities User is required to provide evidence of the below insurance via an insurance certificate (these requirements are also listed on the agreement). If the Facilities User is under/ uninsured, the Facilities User is required to secure an insurance policy covering the day(s) of use meeting our requirements. If the Facilities User needs additional information about a policy that can be secured and the use does not include attendance by unaccompanied minors, information regarding the Tenant User Liability Insurance Policy can be provided.
