Covid-19 home testing kits now available

Free Covid-19 home testing kits are now available for staff and students to collect from the Sibson Building, on the Canterbury campus.

These tests are designed to cover a three-and-a-half-week period, with people submitting their results online following each one. You will need to bring your staff or student ID when coming to collect them.

Testing will be a key part of keeping each other safe over the coming weeks and months, so staff on campus are encouraged to use the services that are available.

Testing on campus

In conjunction with NHS Test and Trace, the University also has an asymptomatic testing site on the Canterbury campus for students and staff who are not currently displaying symptoms of Covid-19. This is based in the Sibson building, with walk-in appointments throughout the week – testing is also available in the Senate building on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can find out more about this on our Canterbury testing webpage.

The University has also worked with the local Health Protection Team to arrange testing for asymptomatic students and staff as part of the Medway community testing programme. You can find out more about this on our Medway testing webpage.

All information on testing available on campus can be found on our Coronavirus testing webpage.
