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 the Office of Risk Management.

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.
