Symptomatic testing

*The symptomatic testing site will be closed on Monday, July 4.

VCU community members can contact either Student Health Services or Employee Health Services (1-804-MYCOVID or 1-804-692-6843) to be referred for COVID-19 testing at a testing location on-campus. This will be conducted at no cost to students or employees.

At-will testing (asymptomatic)

*Asymptomatic testing appointments will be offered through July 1. After July 1, rapid antigen tests can be acquired in the COVID-19 supply vending machines available at the locations listed in the "Supply" section of the public health measures page.

At-will testing appointments are available for asymptomatic VCU community members at the Capital Asset Real Estate (CARE) Building at 800 West Broad Street Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon. At-will testing appointments can be made for any reason other than symptomatic testing (i.e., if you have symptoms).

Appointments for at-will testing are only required if you have never been tested through VCU. Walk-in appointments are available for those who have already been tested through VCU and have a Kallaco account.
