COVID-19 Testing at Herts

To support the Government and NHS in the fight against COVID-19, the University is hosting two testing facilities on its campuses.

Students and staff will be able to have free, quick, and easy COVID-19 tests on campus. The test involves applying a swab to the throat and nose. These tests are only available to students who do not have symptoms of COVID-19.

I don't have COVID-19 symptoms, how do I book a test?

The Rapid COVID-19 Testing Unit is open for appointments, and students and staff must book an appointment before attending. The testing unit is located within the Forum restaurant, on the College Lane Campus. View the map.

I do have COVID-19 symptoms, how do I book a test?

To support our NHS, the University is hosting a COVID-19 testing facility, seven days a week on de Havilland campus, and on Tuesdays and Saturdays on College Lane campus. This facility is for any University staff, students or members of the local community who are showing symptoms of COVID-19. You can book a slot in advance on the Government website.

When slots are available, the site will appear as an option on the Government website. When vising the campus, the facility is located in the Law Court Building car park and Car Park E on College Lane. This site is part of the Government’s UK-wide drive to continue to improve the accessibility of coronavirus testing for local communities. To keep our community safe, anyone attending an appointment will not be permitted to access any other areas of the campus.

They will also be required to follow public health measures throughout the appointment, including travelling to and from the appointment. Anyone attending an appointment will be provided with guidance on getting to and from the test site safely, and additional support will be available for vulnerable groups and people with disabilities.

The site will be managed by the Department for Health and Social Care. For more information about booking a test visit
