Weekly COVID-19 testing available to staff working on campus

25 Jan 2021

From this week, staff who are currently required on campus will be able to take two asymptomatic COVID-19 tests per week.

Testing is available at University Place and from Thursday 28 January, also from our testing centre at Owens Park. Testing slots are bookable from 9am-1pm, Monday to Friday. You can book two tests each week.

When booking your tests, it’s recommended that you book these 3-4 days apart. For example, if you book your first test on a Thursday or Friday, your second test should be on the following Monday. You can repeat this set of two tests each week.

Staff without access to a PC who cannot register online can attend testing slots on a ‘walk-in’ basis at both University Place and Owens Park from 8:30-9am, Monday to Friday.

Weekly testing will continue to be available until the government advises otherwise and we will increase the capacity, if needed.

Weekly testing is also available to all students who are required to be on campus for their studies.

IMPORTANT: You must not attend our testing centre if you have symptoms of COVID-19. If you have symptoms, you should book through NHS Test and Trace.

If you test positive or need to self-isolate, please report it.
