General liability insurance is required for room bookings hosted by “external” users. The following statement regarding insurance serves as a guideline.

  1. The Client shall obtain and maintain in force during the event a policy of General Liability Insurance, including coverage for tenant’s legal liability, with a limit of not less than $5 million per occurrence.  THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, ITS BOARD OF GOVERNORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS shall be named on the policy as additional insured. The insurance shall be primary in respect of all claims made by reason of any act or omission of the Client, and shall not participate with, or be excess over, any valid and collectible insurance carried by The University of British Columbia.
  2. Evidence of such insurance shall be presented to The University of British Columbia 30 days prior to the arrival of the Client.
  3. Maintenance of the insurance, and the performance by the Client of its obligations, shall not relieve the Client of liability under the indemnity provisions set forth herein and this indemnity shall survive the expiry or sooner termination of this Agreement.
