Booking your Rapid COVID-19 Test at USW
This UK Government project aims to test asymptomatic university students and staff (working on campus). In other words, students and staff who do not have symptoms of COVID-19.
USW staff who are currently working on campus are eligible for a test, as well as those USW students returning to our University campuses. In addition, we have partnered with University of Wales Trinity Saint David to enable approximately 80 of their staff and students to take tests at our Cardiff campus.
This test will inform students and staff by text message if they are positive or negative within an hour of their visit to the test site. This will help to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19.
