SOAR Equipment Loan

SOAR's Equipment Loan (Click here)

SOAR’s Equipment Loan Program aims to ease some financial burdens affiliated student organizations may face by making specific equipment readily available. This program offers affiliated student organizations the option to borrow equipment for the 2023-2024 academic year.

The equipment that SOAR offers to affiliated student organizations consists of the following:

  • Canopy
  • Wagon
  • Table
  • Bubble Maker
  • Balloon Air Pump
  • Walkie-Talkie
  • Canopy Weights

All signers and specified general members of affiliated student organizations must read and sign this equipment loan contract via Docusign before submitting the request to check out SOAR equipment. Only RCO board members and general members who have signed the agreement can initiate the equipment check-out process. Once the contract is signed, you can submit your reservation request for the equipment below.

Insurance Coverage

Campus Connexions website (Click here)

Hosting an event on campus or off campus? Please be sure to connect with the SOAR office and Risk Service to understand the requirements regarding the insurance needs of your program. 


The University of California has created an insurance program to cover Registered Student Organizations (RSO) for most on-campus events. Events covered by the policy are paid for by the University. However, RSOs are responsible for making sure their event is covered.


The University of California does not provide liability insurance coverage for the off-campus activities of student organizations. Although the University cannot require that student organizations obtain insurance for off-campus events, having insurance is recommended, especially for events involving physical activity. In some cases the student organization may have no choice but to obtain insurance, because the outside facility hosting the event requires proof of coverage before allowing the event to occur.

The University provides this website so student organizations can purchase insurance for off-campus events. It is best to start the process at least 7 to 10 days before the event. UNLIKE ON-CAMPUS STUDENT EVENTS, OFF-CAMPUS EVENTS ARE NOT PAID FOR BY THE UNIVERSITY. You must pay for the coverage by credit or debit card.
