During August (starting Monday 2 August), the University rapid Covid-19 testing centres will only offer home lateral flow testing kits for collection. The testing centres will not be running rapid Covid-19 tests on site during this time.
Home test kits can be collected from:
- Harcourt Hill Campus, main reception, Monday-Friday: 10.00am-3:30pm
- Headington Campus, JHB Building reception, Monday-Friday: 11.00am-3:30pm
- Swindon Campus, reception, Monday-Friday: 8:30am - 3:30pm
Please continue to use lateral flow tests twice-weekly to help stop the spread of Covid-19: one in three people with Covid-19 does not display symptoms.
If you are not on campus you can access rapid Covid-19 tests (lateral flow) at a local NHS testing centre, by ordering them online or collect from a test site or a pharmacy participating in Pharmacy Collect.
If you have travelled to the UK from a "red list" or "amber list" country, you are required to quarantine on your arrival. Our Travel to the UK webpage gives you more information.
You must take two PCR Covid-19 tests during your quarantine. These must be booked pre-arrival and will incur a fee (prices range from £99-£395). You must book these via the dedicated government website. The rapid Covid-19 tests offered by the University DO NOT replace the two PCR tests you must take as part of your quarantine. Rapid Covid-19 tests will be available to you twice-weekly when your quarantine ends.
The International Student Advice Team can give advice to international students travelling to the UK and has a helpful Quarantine and Self-Isolation Guide, with advice on what you need to do and what you can do during your quarantine period.
Please inform Oxford Brookes that you are quarantining using the Coronavirus reporting form. See the Test and trace, reporting and self-isolation webpage for more guidance on this.
