When to get Insurance

Obtaining insurance is necessary in the following three cases:

  • Events where alcohol is being served
  • Events that have not been pre-approved by the USSU during ratification for general liability insurance
  • Any other event that carries significant risk, such as sporting competitions

All insurance forms must be properly filled out and submitted to the USSU no less than two (2) weeks prior to the event.
