Co-sponsorship Limits and Use of the Bucknell Name
If scheduling permits, a non-Bucknell group may utilize Bucknell's facilities during the academic year. However, having members of the Bucknell community associated with an event does not necessarily constitute a “co-sponsored event.” Co-sponsoring an event in name only, in order to gain access to University facilities, exposes the University to undue liability risk and makes the space unavailable for true Bucknell-related purposes.
The name “Bucknell University” may not be used in association with a non-university function without prior consent from the Events Management Director.
Liability Insurance Requirements
In those cases where a non-Bucknell sponsored event is able to be scheduled, all individuals or organizations renting or using Bucknell's facilities for non-Bucknell events or programs must file in advance of the activity a certificate of insurance naming the University as an additional insured and obtain a limit of liability appropriate to the activity.
Find liability insurance information
Families renting Bucknell facilities for a wedding or reception, or individuals registering for an event at Cowan, may find it possible to obtain a rider on their household insurance policy to meet this requirement. An authorized non-University user of facilities may also purchase a special event policy to provide such insurance coverage for their guests, themselves and the University.
The University reserves the right to revoke campus privilege, cancel, postpone or change location of a function, when in the opinion of the vice president for finance & administration, it is deemed appropriate.
