Access home testing kits

From Tuesday, 1 June, staff and students will be able to collect a COVID-19 self-test kit to allow you to take regular tests at home at a convenient time. Each kit contains 7 tests enabling users to test twice weekly or more often if required, and full instructions are included.

Test kits can be collected from the Sports Centre, Greenbank reception and Leahurst reception from 1 June.

When taking a home test, you should register your result on the NHS app.

When registering your result, the app will ask you a series of questions, firstly when prompted with the question ‘Who was the test for?’ you must select: ‘A nursery, school, college, university, childcare provider or other education provider.’

The next page asks for the site ID – for this please select from the below, depending on where you collected your kit from: Sports Centre – BEPG or Greenbank – BEPK. You can also start typing University of Liverpool and the dropdown box should give you these options to select from.

Should you test positive as part of this testing, please phone your Hall Reception and follow these reporting procedures for notifying the University. If you have any questions about this process, please contact your Hall Reception for further guidance. Further details on when to self-isolate can be seen here.
