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.

The kits will be available at the Edge during the same hours as the Lateral Flow Testing service is operating: 10am to 2pm, Monday to Friday. This is a drop-in service with no need to book.

You are strongly recommended you undertake three supervised tests in our Lateral Flow Testing service (or elsewhere) before you collect a home kit.

When you pick up your pack, the team will ask for your name and telephone number, so please bring your Library or ID card with you. Each pack contains seven test kits and should last for three and a half weeks.

After completing a home test, you should register your result with NHS Test and Trace.

You can also order free packs of rapid lateral flow tests to be sent to your home or collect them from local pharmacies.
