Asymptomatic testing at Queen's

It’s possible to be positive with COVID-19 but not be aware of it. By taking regular tests when you don’t have symptoms, you will help to stop the spread of the virus, protect other people and save lives.

Test regularly to protect others: Asymptomatic testing guidance for staff and students

All students and staff should get tested before coming on to campus for any reason and then undertake regular testing twice a week or as often as possible for as long as you are on campus. In the first instance, you should arrange two tests no less than three days and no more than seven days apart.

This testing is for students and staff without COVID-19 symptoms (asymptomatic) - to help confirm that you do not have COVID-19.

Scroll down the page for further information in our asymptomatic testing FAQs, including what to do if you test positive.


Closure of Queen's on campus asymptomatic testing facility

The University is shifting to provision of at home test kits only from Thursday 25 November and will close our on-campus asymptomatic testing facility from that date. 

We will continue to provide LFD Home Test Kits to staff and students.   

If you have symptoms

The asymptomatic (lateral flow) testing programme does not replace current testing policy for those with symptoms.

If any member of the Queen’s community develops symptoms at any time, it is essential that they self-isolate immediately, arrange a PCR test and follow public health guidance. Find out more in our COVID-19 FAQs for students.
