Certificate and Proof of Insurance Request

When borrowing or leasing equipment, renting outside facilities, or dealing with off-campus vendors or service providers, you may be asked to provide a certificate of insurance (COI). A COI is used to show specific proof of insurance from damage which the University is liable as part of a contract, purchase order, or other agreement.

If you are a member of the faculty or staff and you need a COI, would like help with proof of insurance requests, or have other questions, please contact:

To expedite COI requests, please forward the information on the attached form along with a copy of the contact or agreement to the same email address. Although COIs will usually be issued in four business days or less, please call if a faster response is required.

COIs will only be approved for University-sanctioned activities.
