Book a COVID-19 test

There are two different Covid-19 tests available to students and staff.

  • PCR tests for those experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 and for double vaccinated close contacts of people who have been confirmed as having Covid-19.
  • Lateral Flow tests which are available to all students and staff who do not have symptoms. All students and staff are encouraged to take these tests twice each week.

Students arriving in the UK from overseas may need to book PCR tests through a private provider as part of the arrival process. The University of Liverpool has negotiated a special rate with Biograd for travel testing.  You can find more information on our international guidance pages.

For further guidance please contact covort@liverpool.ac.uk or call the Covid Advisory Service Monday - Friday 10am - 4:30pm on 0151 795 9500.
