COVID-19 Mandatory Testing – Once Every 7 Days

COVID-19 Mandatory Testing – Once Every 7 Days

The following information was shared Monday, February 8 with current on-campus residents. Please refer to the University's main Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information page regularly for important campus information.

Dear Campus Housing Resident,

We are pleased to share this update regarding mandatory testing: 

Due to declining positivity rates on campus and in Pima County, you are no longer required to be tested for COVID-19 twice per week. Instead, you are required to be tested weekly (at least once every seven days). All residents will continue to be tested with the rapid antigen tests. We will continue to review results for any increases in COVID-19 risk and will adjust testing requirements as necessary.

Additionally, you will have a second test site option! Starting Feb. 15, the Global Center will be a rapid antigen test site for residents only. Global Center appointment scheduling will be available starting Feb. 8. (Select “Campus Housing Resident Testing at Global Center” when scheduling.)

Rapid antigen testing will continue to be available for residents at the Student Union South Ballroom as well.

Schedule Your Test

Please be sure to cancel any unneeded appointments. To do this, click the “Change your appointment” link at the bottom of the appointment confirmation email.

If you have any questions, please contact the Testing Call Center at or 520-848-4030. 

Thank you for your continued commitment to your health and the safety of our campus community.
