In support of the UK Government's testing programme, University of Kent students and staff who are not showing Covid-19 symptoms (ie are asymptomatic) should get tested twice a week.
We have test centres on both the Canterbury and Medway campuses for walk-in lateral flow tests or collection of self-test kits for use at home.
You can also order lateral flow test kits from the NHS online.
Canterbury testing and self-test kit collections
You can have a walk-in asymptomatic test or collect self-test kits for use at home from our test centre in the The Old Bank on the Canterbury campus (formerly home to a branch of Santander).
Medway testing and self-test kit collections
The University has worked with the local Health Protection Team to arrange testing for asymptomatic students and staff as part of the Medway community testing programme.
What to do if you have symptoms
Asymptomatic testing is only for students and staff who have no Covid-19 symptoms. If you have Covid-19 symptoms, you should follow latest guidance in our Covid-19 pages for students and staff.
