California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) serves as a vital educational and cultural
resource to the San Diego North County community and beyond. As such, a variety of
activities and special events are held on-campus and off-campus throughout the year.
In addition to CSUSM-sponsored events, individuals and outside organizations frequently
make arrangements to use CSUSM's facilities for conferences, receptions, and other
special events. Event and Conference Services (ECS) is responsible for scheduling
CSUSM facilities for non-instructional events and coordinating associated services.
Special events and activities often pose additional risk to the University and activity
participants. Policies and guidelines have been developed to assist with planning
such activities to address safety considerations. Special Event Insurance may also
be required. Special Event Insurance provides short term liability coverage for the
University to address various exposures presented by special events, and for individuals
and groups using CSUSM facilities who may not have their own commercial insurance
or insufficient commercial insurance limits.
ECS and CSUSM departments who are involved in hosting or planning an on-campus or
off-campus special event may contact Integrated Risk Management at 760-750-RISK (7475)
for consultation and assistance in determining whether Special Event Insurance is
required. For this consultation, please provide the following information about the
- name of the individual and/or organization sponsoring the event
- type of event
- date, time, and location of the event
- estimated number of attendees
- age group(s) of the attendees
- description of event activities
- if alcohol will be served
