Private Vehicles Used for University Business

Individuals using a personal vehicle are required to carry auto liability insurance that meets the minimum limits required by the state. The owner must use his/her individual automobile insurance coverage as the primary insurance in the event of an accident. Once the owner's policy has been exhausted, the University's excess liability coverage will apply. The University will not reimburse for any deductible or liability claim paid by their personal auto insurance policy.

The University of Wyoming will not pay for any damage to the personal vehicle.

Please notify Risk Management and Safety by completing the Accident Report Form and return via email.
