Student Event Insurance

To get insurance for an on-campus event, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your student organization is registered with Student Life. Coverage is available only for REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS.
  2. Obtain a signed Facilities Use Agreement (FUA) or other form of facility reservation confirmation from the department in charge of the facility your organization wants to use.
  3. Go to the CampusConnexions website and select "Registered Campus Organization (RCO)" from the menu or call the toll-free line at 866.838.9536 for information.

If you are holding a low-risk event, the third step may not be necessary because coverage for low-risk events is automatic. Low-risk events include the following:

  • Meetings
  • Lectures
  • Receptions
  • Seminars
  • Teleconferences

If you are not sure whether your event fits into these categories, take Step 3. The web site or a representative will tell you whether your event is low-risk. You can also contact campus Risk Services at riskservices@ucmerced.edu

To get insurance for an off-campus eventfollow step three above. Please note that insurance for off-campus events is not paid for by the University. For on-campus events, coverage is free most of the time. The exceptions are high-risk events that are not covered by the insurance policy.

Apply for the insurance 7-10 days before the event.
