TULIP Program

The Tenants’ and Users’ Liability Insurance Policy (TULIP) provides low-cost special event insurance to third party users of the University facilities. TULIP is event specific and protects both the facility user, or third party, and the institution against claims by individuals who could be injured or experience damage to property as a result of participating in an event. Events may range from classroom seminars, receptions, or weddings to festivals and fairs, sports events, or concerts.

The program includes the following hazard classes:

Hazard Class I - events are low-risk and include weddings, receptions, classical music recitals or dance shows, art shows, meetings, and socials.
Hazard Class II - events are considered slightly higher risk and include social receptions, certain outdoor events, and union meetings.
Hazard Class III - events are the highest category of risk that can be automatically covered without underwriter oversight and include some sports events, small parades, and theatrical stage performances.

The TULIP policy provides (automatically or by endorsement):

  • General liability coverage
  • Liquor liability coverage 
  • Sexual molestation coverage
  • Third party property damage coverage
  • Excess liability coverage

To purchase the TULIP coverage for an event on University campus, you may apply at the Program Website. Select “Quick Quote” or “Get a Quote for your event” on the website, then select University of San Francisco to begin the quote process for an event. 

Once the certificate of insurance has been generated, it will automatically be sent to Risk Management and Events Management.
