Coronavirus Testing

As restrictions continue to ease, remember to make use of the free testing facilities on campus!

Following the latest change to government restrictions on 17 May, we’ve been so pleased to see many of you return to campus and to finally feel like things are returning to normality. It is such great news that we are able to do more again, as up to 30 people can now meet outdoors, and indoor hospitality and entertainment venues have been able to reopen. We hope that everyone is enjoying themselves, but also keeping safe and being respectful to others.

Thank you all for your efforts over the last year which have really helped reduce the number of Covid-19 cases not only in Exeter but across the country. It is through safe social distancing measures and regular testing that we have been able to enjoy more freedom as restrictions have gradually been eased.

To be able to continue meeting with friends and going to hospitality venues, we want to stress the importance of getting regular tests to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We continue to encourage our students to get tested twice a week, particularly as you might be coming into contact with more people as in-person activities have once again continued.

It’s now easier than ever to get tested, as we are providing free home test kits which can be picked up on our campuses. You can find out more information and about our collection points here.  

You can also continue using our testing sites on both Streatham and St. Luke’s Campuses. You are able to book your test online or just drop-in to get your Covid test within minutes! More information on our testing sites and opening times can be found online. Please continue to go to the University website for all information and advice, as well as our Coronavirus Hub for all the latest updates.

Whilst we are now able to start going out and enjoying seeing friends, these are still extremely stressful times and we want to remind you that you have our full support if you need it. We encourage you to use our Advice Service and speak to our trained advisors on any matters regarding finances, academic issues, accommodation, and welfare. You can also find further support and information through the university’s Wellbeing Services.

We hope that all of your exams have gone well and good luck to those of you who are still studying. We hope that you all are keeping safe and well!
