How to report a positive COVID-19 test or self-isolation

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We encourage everyone on campus to take a COVID-19 test twice a week, three to four days apart. Even if you are vaccinated, it is still important to get tested regularly.

We are all working to keep our campus as safe as possible, to protect each other and the NHS.

To help us look after the wellbeing of our staff and students, please report any positive cases or self-isolation. Knowing how many staff and students are off ill or self-isolating means we are better able to make decisions to support you in your studies.

How to get a test

You can now collect free rapid lateral flow home testing kits from our campus catering outlets. You can see details of their opening hours at Food on Campus.

You can also order home test kits online.

These tests are for people who don’t have symptoms. You use a swab to take a sample from your tonsils (or where they would be) and your nose, and you get a result in around 30 minutes. You can find more information on testing and vaccinations here.

How to make a report

If you test positive and need to self-isolate, make sure you report it using our online form.
