Rental Group Policies and Procedures:
Brown University requires proof of general liability insurance to cover non-university events held in our facilities for meetings, conferences, sports camps/clinics, weddings or other special functions or events.
- The acceptable form of insurance documentation is a certificate of insurance showing evidence of general liability insurance to cover the event and use of University facilities.
- The certificate of insurance must provide a minimum of $1 million in coverage limits and include Brown University as the certificate holder and as an additional named insured for the event and use of facilities.
Brown University Dining Services has first right of refusal for any outside event that desires to have food or drink served. Brown Dining Services can offer concessions, catered, or bar services. If Brown Dining Services is unable or uninterested in covering an event, we will work with event leadership to find a mutually agreed upon vendor to service the event.
