Get a COVID-19 test twice a week
One in three people with coronavirus don’t have any symptoms. If you are back in halls, get tested twice a week, every week to help keep you and your friends safer and your studies on track. Asymptomatic lateral flow tests are free, quick and easy with results usually within the hour.
All residents in the intercollegiate halls are eligible to use the University of London test site at Student Central, Malet Street WC1E 7HY.
For more information and to book your next test, go here: https://london.ac.uk/test-and-trace.
In addition, UCL, King’s, LSE, QMUL, and a few other universities have facilities for testing their own students.
