Tenants’ and Users’ Liability Insurance Policy (TULIP)

This policy is designed to provide low-cost general liability insurance to external users (3rd parties with no relation to the institution and no institutional financial support) of University facilities.  Most transactions are web-based and coverage is provided by Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, not the University of South Carolina.  Contact the Arthur J. Gallagher TULIP managers directly if you experience difficulties with the website, have questions about high-risk activities, or want to know about other program details.

If you wish to purchase TULIP coverage, please visit  https://tulip.ajgrms.com/.

You will need to select “Quick Quote,” and complete an application form, and pay by credit card for the coverage. Upon completion of the transaction, you will be emailed a copy of your application and a binder of coverage. The University’s Risk Management office will also receive a copy describing the event and a certificate of insurance.

If you have purchased TULIP coverage, please note the following:

  • You must verify the coverage you purchase meets your specific agreement for facilities use.
  • The University of South Carolina should be named as and additional insured for all events.
  • Liquor Liability coverage is required for any event where alcohol will be served.
  • If vendors are attending your event, you must verify that they have proper insurance coverage naming the University of South Carolina as an additional insured or you must purchase coverage for the vendors when prompted to do so.
