Covid-19 testing

The University is hosting a coronavirus community testing centre at the Gryphon Sports Centre, open 8am-8pm every day as part of the NHS Track and Trace service. Anyone who suspects they have symptoms should self-isolate immediately and book a free test online, or call 119 if without internet access. If they test positive, they must notify the University as soon as possible.
