Asymptomatic testing programme for Coronavirus

The Waterfront Test Centre, located under in the former Profiles gym, underneath Athena Hall is now closed. In alignment with National Public Health strategy the University has been working closely with DfE and DHSC to offer a LFD Home Testing Kit Collection Point. The collection point is located at Waterfront Reception in the University of Suffolk Waterfront Building within their opening times.

Home testing kits can also be collected from both Test Centres and/or Collection Sites. To find a test centre or collection site in Suffolk please use the Find a Vaccination or Test Centre.  You can also order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests to be delivered directly to you at home.

Track and Trace

We are following the government Track and Trace process by providing QR codes around the campus. Please scan these codes to ‘check-in’ when you are on campus. The NHS COVID-19 app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. 

COVID-19 Vaccine

We strongly encourage our students to have the COVID-19 vaccination once you are offered it. You do not have to have both doses in the same location and do not have to be registered with a GP to obtain vaccination. More information about the vaccination programme can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/
