COVID-19 Testing for students and staff
COVID-19 testing is available to all our students and staff at the University to help keep our community safe.
Why getting tested is important
Did you know that 1 in 3 people who have COVID-19 do not have any symptoms? This is why getting an asymptomatic test before coming to campus is the best way to protect our community and minimise the spread of COVID-19. Testing makes it possible for us to track COVID-19 cases on campus and ensure the University remains a safe environment for everybody in our community.
Student and staff asymptomatic testing
The Asymptomatic Rapid Testing Centre at the Forum Restaurant is open for appointments, and students and staff must book before attending. This Testing Centre is only for people who do not have symptoms. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms before your test, do not come to the Testing Centre. Instead, please follow the Government guidance and see the NHS information below on this page.
Where to get tested if you have symptoms
To support our NHS, the University is hosting a COVID-19 testing facility, seven days a week, on de Havilland 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.
