Book your Coronavirus tests in 2021

How to book onto the NHS Test and Trace programme for Coronavirus tests at University of Bath. Updated 7 May 2021.

Who can book

The tests are for all students and staff who do not currently have symptoms of Coronavirus.

If you do have symptoms and you are a student you must follow Isolate, Test, Tell guidance, if you are staff you must do the same and let us know.

For more information please see our National Coronavirus testing programme 2021 FAQs.

When you can take your tests

You should aim to book two tests every week, three days apart.

If you are a student who has been away from Bath, the first one should be as soon as possible after your arrival back.

If you are a student who has remained on campus or in the city, or if you are a member of staff, you are welcome to book tests in coordination with your return to campus.

From 26 April to 28 May our campus site will be open Monday to Friday 10:00-14:00 and our City site open on Tuesdays and Fridays 10:30-14:00. Both sites will be closed on bank holidays.

Where you can take your tests

You can take your test at The Edge building on campus or the Dartmouth Avenue building in Oldfield Park, which offers extra capacity with plenty of slots available.

If it’s more convenient, you can also use the B&NES facility at 3 Burton Street in the city centre (BA1 1BN). Appointments are available in five minute slots and can be booked up to two weeks in advance on the B&NES website. When booking, simply select ‘other’ in the occupation category.

If you prefer to test for coronavirus at home, free packs of testing kits will be available to collect on campus from Monday 17 May.
