Information for university participants

Your university will provide more information about how to participate in the saliva testing programme, including where to drop off your samples. Please follow these instructions carefully and only provide a sample when prompted.


If you are staff or a student at the University of Southampton you can find out more information about the saliva testing programme and register for testing through the university.

If you test positive you will be contacted within 24 hours by a healthcare professional who will provide advice and support. You will also be contacted by email, text or phone by the NHS Test and Trace service. Find out more about your test results.

Please remember to tell your university if you test positive or need to self-isolate because someone you have been in contact with has tested positive. They will be able to support you during your self-isolation period.
