Get regular tests to reduce the risk to your fellow students, staff and our university community.
Welcome to the university’s testing service which detects the coronavirus through a simple saliva sample to help control Covid-19 outbreaks. Regular testing of our staff and students not showing symptoms of the coronavirus offers reassurance, reduces onwards transmission of the virus, and helps to keep everyone safe.
