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 and our cases low. Anyone who visits campus should get a test before, or when, they arrive. 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 getting an asymptomatic test before coming to campus, or when you arrive, 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 lots of options available to our students and staff to access asymptomatic testing.
I have COVID-19 symptoms – How can I get tested?
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 at this facility, or one closer to your home, on the Government website.
