University Park students can still get appointments for universal COVID testing

February 22, 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Appointments are still available for University Park students to receive their required universal COVID-19 test from Feb. 24 through 26 at White Building. Students who have missed a previous appointment or have not yet registered can go to the link in an email from that was sent to their Penn State account on Feb. 9.

As part of start of in-person learning, Penn State is conducting universal COVID-19 testing of all students who are taking in-person classes or who are taking a fully remote or online course load while living in Centre County or within a 20-mile radius of a Penn State campus.

This second round of universal testing is in addition to the required initial testing of all students before the start of in-person learning, and does not fulfill the requirement that students must have a negative COVID-19 test result from a University-provided test on file prior to, and within 72 hours of, their return to their campus community.

Students at other Penn State locations should review campus-specific testing times and locations for information.

Additional information on testing can be found on Penn State’s COVID-19 virus information website.
