COVID-19 Testing

Updated Nov. 24, 2020

Asymptomatic testing for COVID-19 is conducted at the Public Health Promotion Center (PHPC) at the Mullins Center. This testing is designed to mitigate community spread through the early detection of infection.

Testing is free, fast and critically important in our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Center is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Monday through Thursday, except Nov. 25-26, Dec. 23-24, and Dec. 30-31.

How to Get Tested


Students, faculty or staff who are identified as being a part of the routine asymptomatic testing program will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule appointments through the Campus Health Hub. Testing is in the Public Health Promotion Center (PHPC) at the Mullins Center.

Testing remains open during Winter Break and Winter Term Monday through Thursday except Nov. 25-26, Dec. 23-24, and Dec. 30-31. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS TESTING.
