Wadham students and staff can pick up boxes of seven Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests from the Lodge/reception thanks to the University’s new ‘LFD Collect’ scheme.
Show your University card or Single Sign-On username, and you’ll be able to collect a box of LFD tests, free of charge from the Lodge or the Residential Operations Manager at Merifield/DWB.
To make things quicker, we recommend that you check your details are registered with the Early Alert Service before you collect your first test kit.
We’re strongly encouraging all of our students who are back in Oxford, and all staff who are working on site, to take part in symptom-free testing twice a week to help keep everyone COVID-safe and avoid further restrictions on college life this term.
Other options for symptom-free testing
The University’s symptom-free testing centres will close at the end of the day on Tuesday 29 June. The test centre at the University Club has already closed to allow the space to be used as a temporary vaccination centre.
Students and staff can access LFD tests via other Government routes.
Reporting LFD Collect test results
By picking up a set of seven tests from the LFD Collect service, you are agreeing to use all of the tests yourself and also to report all your results (negative, positive or void) to both the Early Alert Service (EAS) and the NHS – every time you take an LFD test, as soon as possible after you get the result.
How to take an LFD test
It’s important to make sure you’re performing the test correctly in order to get an accurate result, so we recommend watching this NHS instruction video.
