These sites continue to use the nasal swab testing method and are open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm, exclusively for Housing residents. (If arriving after 5pm, you may schedule at one of the other campus sites.)

Read the saliva test preparation instructions closely in advance to make sure you get a successful result.
