Claims

Loss, Theft, or Damage to Non-Owned Property

Temple University's insurance does not respond to losses for non-owned property unless the University has assumed liability by way of a written contract or agreement. Risk Management must be notified prior to the initiation of a contract or agreement wherein Temple University will be assuming liability for non-owned property. For a claim for non-owned property to be considered, the following must be received:

  • Campus Safety/Police Report or detailed narrative of the event giving rise to the loss
  • A copy of the agreement between the property owner and Temple University
  • Property Loss/Damage Form

Claims not reported within 30 days may be denied. All claims must be reported promptly to Koshy Kurien at (215) 204-5217 or .

Special Event Insurance

If you are hosting an event at Temple or utilizing a Temple facility and DO NOT currently have insurance, short term and special event policies are available through a Tenants' and Users' Liability Insurance Policy (TULIP).  For more information, and to get your quote, please visit TULIP’s website.

University Banking Relationship

Temple University is pleased to announce that over the next several months, the university will be transitioning its business banking relationship from PNC to JP Morgan. This is a long and complex process that will require some overlap in banks until all accounts and services are fully transitioned. Throughout this process, you can expect to see changes and/or requests for updates to existing bank accounts and banking services.
