How long will I have to wait for my rapid test result for Covid-19?

In most cases, you will receive your result within a couple of hours, however it could take up to 24 hours.

All students based in term-time accommodation are strongly encouraged to take two Rapid (LFD) Tests per week. You can book your tests here.

If you receive a positive Rapid (LFD) test you will need to self-isolate immediately, and take a follow-up polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test as soon as possible. You will also need to notify the University that you are self-isolating through this form.


 If you have any queries regarding testing please get in touch: For students: Covid Support ( For colleagues: Occupational health ( )
