Book a COVID-19 test

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you can book a test quickly and easily at the University’s COVID test centre on campus.

The test centre is open 9am – 5pm every day. The tests will be conducted using self-swabbing supported by Student Health staff who will provide information and guidance on site.

Book a test

Test results are being processed by Liverpool Clinical Laboratories and will be available by text message within 24 hours.

Testing is being provided for staff and students to enhance local NHS testing capacity and results will automatically feed through to your GP and the National Institute for Health Protection (NIHP).

If you are a student, it is important that you register with a GP in Liverpool as soon as you arrive to support this process. You can choose to register with any local GP near to your term-time address including the Student Health Centre, run by Brownlow Health, which is based on the University campus.

If you have difficulties booking a test online because of a disability, you can book a test by calling 0151 795 1000. It is important that you only use this number if you cannot book a test online as a result of a disability.

If you have any other queries about the on-campus COVID-19 test centre or are struggling to book a test for any other reason please contact shield@liverpool.ac.uk.

You will need your staff or student ID number handy in the booking process (you can find this on your staff or student card).

In line with NHS and National Institute for Health Protection priorities we are not offering asymptomatic testing on campus. Testing will only be available to students and staff experiencing symptoms of coronavirus.

Recording contact with others

Try to make a list of everyone you have been in close contact with in the 48 hours before your symptoms started. This will be really important for containing the spread of the virus if you test positive.

A contact is defined as anybody who you have been in contact with for one minute or longer and within a distance of a metre or less, or for 15 minutes or longer and within a distance of two metres.

How to find the test centre

You will find the COVID Test Centre opposite building 502 next to the Peach Street car park, see grid E6 on the campus map (PDF).
