University Update: COVID-19 Testing Required Twice a Week

The following information was shared Friday, January 15 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,

President Robbins and the university leadership team have advised that all students who live on campus will be required to get a COVID-19 test two times a week, until there is less spread of the virus on campus and in the community. Additional testing will help protect you and the campus community. 

You are required to test twice per week until testing and wastewater results improve.

Here's what you MUST do:


Note: If you had a positive antigen or PCR test in the past 90 days, you are exempt from these testing requirements until 90 days after your positive result. If your positive test was taken on campus, your 90 day exemption will be granted automatically. If you tested positive at an off-campus location, please upload your positive result to Campus Health in order to receive a 90 day testing exemption.

We greatly appreciate your ongoing efforts to protect the Wildcat community and slow the spread of COVID-19.
