Insurance Requirements

College of the Mainland is pleased to provide access to our facilities for outside groups and individuals to conduct events on our campus. As a public entity, COM is generally protected from liability by sovereign immunity; however, there are limited situations when the College may be exposed to greater risk and requires outside groups or individuals to obtain insurance covering their event.

College of the Mainland understands that not all events carry the same risk. We are happy to work with you and your group, to the greatest extent possible, to make our facilities available for your event. While the College has sole discretion in determining the need for outside groups or individuals to provide proof of insurance for an event, the following is a general statement regarding our practice.

Insurance in the appropriate amounts will be required for any event that is considered high-risk to the College. This includes, but is not limited to, rental of campus recreational facilities or other outdoor pursuit activities. Insurance will also be required for all events during which alcohol will be served as well as events where the third-party user will be bringing in exhibitors or vendors. Meetings, luncheons, and weddings (without alcohol) will ordinarily not require proof of insurance. School districts and government agencies may self-insure.

There are times when a group or person does not have insurance coverage. In such cases where the College determines the use of the facility for a special event requires insurance, the College has access to the URMIA Tenants and Users Liability Insurance Program or TULIP. This program allows third party groups to purchase insurance directly for specific functions to be held on campus. It is designed to provide low cost general liability insurance/accident medical coverage to third party users of the College’s facilities. In turn, it protects the College by naming COM as an additional insured.
