Rapid results Covid-19 testing available from Sunday 3 January

Rapid asymptomatic testing for students and staff will be available from Sunday 3 January to Friday 5 February.

Working with the UK government and the NHS, the University is offering free rapid results covid testing to all asymptomatic students and members of staff on campus.

The government recommends that you have two tests, three days apart, before you resume your in-person activities on campus. The first test should take place as soon as possible when you return to campus.

These tests are being offered to give you some reassurance that you can resume your in-person activities safely and you are not spreading Covid-19 to others. The Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests used are safe and reliable, and the result of the test will be delivered to you by text or email within a few hours.

You will need to book an appointment for your tests.
