COVID-19 testing and reporting

The Government and Department for Education no longer requires all students and staff in education settings to test twice a week using lateral flow tests. Testing regularly is now a matter of personal choice, although as you would expect, we would actively encourage students and staff to continue with a regular testing regime, in order to look after their own health and help protect each other. 

As the requirement for testing has now been lifted, we will be bringing to a close the free home testing lateral flow kits. We still have a small number of these kits left, which are available for collection at one of our collection points as follows:

  • Stoke-on-Trent –
    • Cadman Main Entrance – campus security window (College Road) – Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm
    • Squeeze Box (College Road) – Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm
    • Ember Lounge (College Road) – Monday to Friday 10am to 11pm, Saturday and Sunday 5pm to 11pm
    • College Road Shop – Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6pm
    • Verve (Leek Road) – Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm
    • Leek Road Shop – Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 7.30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm
  • Stafford Security Lodge – Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 3.30pm
  • Royal Shrewsbury Hospital Information Point – Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 3.30pm
  • London Reception – Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 3.30pm

Every student can collect a maximum of two test packs from our remaining stock. There is no need to book a slot for collecting your home testing kits, just drop in at the nearest collection point. Test kits will be available up until Friday 11 March 2022 or until we run out.

Testing kits are also available from local pharmacies and some retail outlets.

What happens if my test result is positive?

In order to keep our campus safe, we rely on every individual to play their part. Therefore, if you have a positive test result, or are displaying COVID-19 symptoms, we would ask that you continue to report any positive COVID-19 cases via our self-declaration form. This will allow us to monitor COVID-19 or suspected COVID-19 incidents across the University and help us avoid any local outbreaks.
