Book a free COVID-19 Test
Please use this system to book a Covid-19 test at our Covid-19 Testing Centre, based in the Students' Union on campus in Sheffield.
This test is only available to University of Sheffield students and staff who are not showing any Covid-19 symptoms. If you develop symptoms of Covid-19, self-isolate, book an NHS test and inform the University.
If you regularly visit campus, you should book regular tests at our Covid-19 Testing Centre.
Test slots should be scheduled within the hours you are on campus to avoid unnecessary travel to and from the University. Repeat tests should be at least three days apart.
Students should also arrange to take two tests at our Covid-19 Testing Centre upon returning to Sheffield:
- Book the tests to take place as soon as possible upon returning.
- The second test should be scheduled to take place three days after the first.
- Plan to arrive back to Sheffield with enough time to take two tests before the start of any face-to-face teaching.
- While awaiting test results, restrict social contact with others as much as possible.
After receiving a negative test result, there is still a risk of you having the virus. Continue to follow government guidance to minimise the risk of transmission.
If you are travelling outside of the UK: please note that this test will not provide any documentation needed for overseas travel.
If you are self-isolating in the UK following overseas travel: a test result from our Covid-19 Testing Centre is not applicable to the Test and Release Scheme. For further information, read our returning to Sheffield guidance.
Do not book a test if you have had a positive Covid-19 test in the past 90 days.
Your personal data will be collected and processed for the purpose of booking a test at our Covid-19 Testing Centre.
