University property and equipment is not automatically insured.

The Equipment Insurance campus-wide online program administered by Risk Services provides optional, low cost coverage to University departments for owned, leased or borrowed equipment used for UW work.

System Changes

In October 2016, we made some minor changes to the Equipment Insurance System interface. Here are some FAQs about those changes.

Marine Exposures

Marine Exposures, including Marine Transit, Submerged Equipment or Equipment located on the water are excluded with few exceptions.

See the Marine & Transit Exposures page for details regarding exclusions, exceptions and alternate coverage options. There is no coverage for equipment entered online that is excluded.


Equipment Insurance billing is paperless. Department personnel authorized by ASTRA for the Equipment Insurance System may access current and previous month invoices online. Obtain invoice by logging onto EIS, choose “View Internal Sales Document (ISD)” & select budget/date to view or print the ISD.

Billing is within 3 business days of the end of the month.
