Important information

Welcome to our booking system.  This is where you should book Asymptomatic (symptom-free) Covid Tests.   

Please book your test(s) to coincide with your return to campus or university accommodation.

We are encouraging you to book twice-weekly tests (two tests, three days apart).  However, if you can only book one test please do so. 

These tests are ‘self-administered’ (i.e. you do your own swab then pass it over to be tested).  If you are unable to do the swab yourself you will need to book an 'assisted test slot'.

Tests will be rapidly processed on site. You may receive your results in as little as an hour, but it may take a little longer. 

Announcements
