COVID-19 testing

Due to the high demand for COVID-19 tests at the Student Health Center, we are encouraging all employees to seek COVID-19 testing elsewhere in the community. There are sufficient community resources available for employees to see testing off campus.

The Student Health Center is completely self-supported by student fees and prioritizes health and wellness services for students and must focus on its prescribed mission to provide healthcare for students.

Free daily testing for students

Free daily COVID-19 testing is available for students from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Testing options include Antigen testing and PCR testing for diagnosis of infection.

Testing appointments can be made by calling (775) 784-6598.

Due to a high demand for testing services in our community and on our campus, the Student Health Center may not be able to schedule a COVID test for you on the day you call, but will make every effort to schedule a test as soon as possible. The Student Health Center is unable to accommodate weekly surveillance testing for unvaccinated employees. 

Patients will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening form available through the Student Health Center patient portal from their phone or computer prior to their appointment.

Other testing providers

In addition to the Student Health Center, COVID-19 testing is available through the Washoe County Health DistrictSouthern Nevada Health District, and providers listed on the Nevada Health Reponse website.

For regions outside of Nevada, the CDC recommends you contact your healthcare provider or visit your state, tribal or health department for the latest details on COVID-19 testing in your area.
