# Collect COVID-19 home testing kits from campus
We have home testing kit collection points accross all of our campuses to make it easy for you to access regular symptom-free testing and help keep you and others safe.
In line with government advice, everyone attending campus is strongly urged to access symptom-free testing, known as Lateral Flow Testing (LFT), before accessing any work or study space as follows:
- Regular attendance: two tests per week, at least three days apart and 30 minutes before entering any buildings on campus (other than to access a testing facility)
- Occasional attendance: one test, at least 30 minutes before entering any buildings on campus (other than to access a testing facility)

# Record your results online
If you do tests at home, you must report your results online (opens new window). Please log your result against the name of your campus on the reporting site. You will need to add the Site Code which is written against each collection point in the table above.
If you have not done a Lateral Flow Test before, it is a simple swab to your nose and throat (that you do yourself). Watch this guide on how to do it (opens new window).
# Other ways to access symptom-free testing
You can book an appointment at a Coventry University test centre (opens new window) or find a local community test centre (opens new window) if you don’t want to do the test at home. Find out all of the ways you can access symptom-free testing both on and off campus.
