COVID-19 Testing for students and staff

All university staff, students and visitors are advised to get a COVID-19 test before arriving on campus. Read below to find out more about why testing is important, and which tests you can access.

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 taking a lateral flow test at home 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.

I don’t have COVID-19 symptoms – How can I get tested?

There are several options available to our students and staff to access asymptomatic testing.

I have COVID-19 symptoms – How can I get tested?

If you have COVID-19 symptoms you should take a lateral flow test at home or you can get a PCR test.

If your test result is positive, please begin self-isolating. Read more about self-isolation.

Please do not come to campus until you get a negative test result.
