Room Request Process

The electronic Room Rental Request Form is required for all room requests from external groups for law related workshops, meetings or events. Requests will not be considered until the form has been submitted. Submitting the form does not ensure a reservation, only that you have indicated interest. You will be notified via email of the approval or denial of the request. Please allow up to seven business days from the time the request is submitted for a response.

Room requests will be approved once all classes for the semester have been assigned classrooms and entered in the Room Book.

In general:

  • mid August for the fall semester
  • mid January for the spring semester
  • mid May for the summer semester

Billing

Payment is due according to the terms of your Rental Agreement, generally two weeks prior to the date of your rental. Please refer to your agreement for a specific due date.


Liability

Requirements for State of NH

The State of NH is self-insured, this is sufficient for state-sponsored rentals.

Each department renting space is required to provide a letter of self insurance for each event they hold. 

Letters are usually generated from the State of NH Risk Management Unit.

Requirements for All Others

Acord Certificate of Liability Form 25, with the following elements:

  1. UNH Law listed as certificate holder
     
  2. General Liability Coverage - $1MM per occurrence, $2MM aggregate
     
  3. Workers comp coverage is required if the host will have employees working on site. 

    Minimum coverage in the amount of: $100k/$500K/100K

Other coverage we would like to see, but not required

$1MM umbrella policy

Organizations that do not have the minimum required coverage may buy a one-time “event policy”.  There are many online companies that sell these.

Proof of Insurance must be provided before an event/meeting will be approved.
