General Liability

Lexington Insurance Company insures Bentley University for our General Liability. General Liability claims are claims made against the University by a third party, which alleges negligence by the University that caused bodily injury or property damage on Bentley University owned property. All injuries or property damage/loss should be reported to Campus Police who will forward the information to the Risk Manager's office located in Rauch 028.

Bentley requires anyone coming on campus to conduct business (non-Bentley employees), perform a service or who is renting space, to provide evidence of general liability coverage by providing a Certificate of Insurance. See Certificates of Insurance for specific requirements. All vendors and contractors must submit Certificates of Insurance to the Purchasing Department and anyone holding an outside event needs to submit a Certificate of Insurance to Meeting and Conference Services prior to conducting business.

Property Insurance

Bentley University Property

Whenever Bentley property is lost, damaged or stolen, it is the responsibility of the department/individual involved to contact Campus Police and file a police report. Campus Police will forward the report to the Risk Manager where the report will be reviewed. If the damage is over our deductible and determined to be a covered loss, a claim will be pursued.

Personal Property

Bentley does not insure the personal property of its students, staff or faculty. Students living on campus should purchase their own renter's insurance if not covered under their parents' homeowners' policy.

Worker's Compensation

All individuals who are employed by Bentley are covered by Workers Compensation, which provides reimbursement to staff for medical expenses and/or wages lost as a result of injuries that occur in the course of conducting business at/for the university.

If you become injured while on the job, you should inform your supervisor of this situation as soon as possible. Your supervisor is responsible for filing a first report of injury with Human Resources, who will then coordinate any insurance benefits resulting from your claim with you.

Please contact Human Resources if you have any questions regarding Workers Compensation.
