For students, COVID-19 testing is readily available on the Ann Arbor campus at no cost. University testing options have ample capacity, so your students should be able to get tested with ease.

U-M is using a multi-tiered testing strategy to help protect our community and slow the spread of the virus on campus, which includes:

  • Pre-arrival testing
  • Asymptomatic testing and mandatory testing
  • Symptomatic testing
  • Departure testing

The Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP) offers testing 6 days/week open to any student - including students who are required to complete weekly testing - and who have no symptoms or exposure to COVID-19. 

University Health Service (UHS) offers testing 7 days/week for students with symptoms, close contacts and exposures. Students can conveniently self-schedule COVID-19 testing appointments:

  • Through CSTP
  • Through the UHS patient portal unless they have moderate or urgent symptoms, in which case they should call UHS for an assessment

All positive test results will be tested for COVID-19 variants. 

UHS also provides:

The university is ready and able to help your student test for COVID-19.
