Test before you travel

You must take a lateral flow test before travelling between university and your home address.

If you test positive for Covid-19 or have symptoms, do not travel. Stay where you are and isolate in line with government guidance.

If you are travelling from overseas, view our international guidance.

Take tests twice a week

If you're on or around campus, you must take lateral flow tests twice a week.

You should not take a lateral flow test if:
