Insurance Requirements

Some transactions between the University and vendors require proof of insurance coverage in the form of a Certificate of Insurance (COI) submitted with the standard Accord form. Please do not submit declaration pages, summaries, or copies of your polices, as we require being named an additional insured. Additional or different coverage may be requested depending on the nature of the contract.

  • Certificates of Insurance (COIs)
    • COIs can be easily obtained from insurance brokers. They are generally provided free of charge.
    • All COIs must refer to the University by its full legal name, University of Denver.
    • The University of Denver must be named as an additional insured, with the following language entered verbatim in the Description section: "The University of Denver is named an additional insured as respects their interests."
    • The Certificate Holder section should read as follows:

      University of Denver
      Enterprise Risk Management
      2601 East Colorado Ave.
      Denver, CO 80208
  • Minimum Coverage Requirements
