How can I book a rapid (LFD) Covid-19 test for my return to University in 2021?

Rapid (LFD) testing in 2021

Newcastle University will be offering Covid-19 Rapid (LFD) tests to students on return to campus from Monday 4 January at 12noon. You should book appointments to take two rapid tests, three days apart. You can book your slots now via this online booking link.

These tests are being offered to give you some reassurance that you can resume your in-person activities safely and you are not unknowingly spreading Covid-19 to others on campus and in the wider community.

Remember that you will need to book TWO Tests. Where possible these should be 3 days apart, if this is not possible this can be extended to 5 days. If you have any queries please get in touch: For students: Covid Support ( For colleagues: Occupational health ( )
