Book Your Lateral Flow Test

As restrictions ease, we must Stay Safe. Book your asymptomatic rapid lateral flow test to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.

As restrictions ease, we must Stay Safe to reduce the spread of Covid-19. In line with government advice, if you are travelling to campus, we strongly urge both staff and students to get an asymptomatic rapid lateral flow test before accessing any work or study spaces. If you are regularly attending, you should have two tests each week, three days apart. If you are occasionally attending, you should take one test - and we recommend doing this as close to your arrival on campus as possible.

At CUSU, we are immensely proud to have an all-student workforce supporting the safe operation of our various asymptomatic testing sites across five Coventry University campuses. The team are very experienced and professional in their approach, meaning everyone visiting our testing sites feels comfortable and supported during their self-swab COVID test. It is free to take a test (regardless of how often you take them). They are quick and easy to complete - and you get a result 30 minutes after taking the test.

All of our campuses now offer on-site testing (see opening times below). You can also book online via these links;

Remember, you can also read further guidance on our Stay Safe webpages or the University website; you currently have symptoms, you must book a test through the NHS website (not a lateral flow test here), or by calling 119 and remain in isolation until you receive your test result.
