Test, Trace and Protect process

We are updating the University’s Test, Trace and Protect process and will post further information here once that has been completed.

Asymptomatic home test collection

  • Covid-19 home-testing kits to allow staff and students to undertake twice weekly asymptomatic testing before coming to campus, continue to be available from the below campus locations. If you have one of the main symptoms of Covid-19 (high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste), even if they're mild, do not come onto campus. You must get a PCR test as soon as possible.
  • If you do test positive for COVID-19, you must also ensure that you report this to the University via the reporting form as soon as possible – this form should be filled in irrespective of whether you are currently accessing campus.

Vaccinations

Staff and students can get a first or second dose of the vaccine through:

Further information on pop-up vaccination centres for October will be announced shortly.

Weekly reported cases for University of Birmingham staff and students

We are publishing a weekly report on the total number of new reported COVID-19 cases among our staff and students from the first week of teaching on campus this Academic Year. The figures will be reported weekly, on Wednesdays, covering new cases in the previous seven days. As well as overall numbers, the data include a figure for those who have been on campus (not including student residences) in the two days prior to symptoms starting or testing positive because these are key factors for understanding and minimising the risk of potential on-campus transmission.
