COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing continues to help protect the health and safety of our entire TU community.

Sentinel Testing for Spring 2022

TU’s COVID-19 sentinel testing efforts play a critical and effective role in monitoring, evaluating and limiting the introduction and spread of COVID-19 on campus. This spring, sentinel testing participation will continue to be required for students, faculty and staff who are vaccination exempt for medical or religious reasons. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to participate in sentinel testing.

Once-Weekly Requirement

Individuals required to participate in sentinel testing must schedule and complete one test per week throughout the term. You will receive an email to schedule your test. Students, faculty and staff who do not meet the once-weekly requirement will face consequences for unvaccinated individuals.

Rapid Sentinel Testing

Based on updated health guidance, COVID-19 rapid tests are now the primary tests used for all students, faculty and staff on campus. Positive results from a rapid antigen test will be confirmed with a rapid molecular test.

Rapid sentinel tests are conducted at the West Village Testing Center, located on the ground level of the West Village Parking Garage. The testing center is next to the elevators closest to Emerson Drive. Parking is available on the third level. If you parked in the garage, make a right when you exit the elevator. The center is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Rapid test appointments generally last between 20-25 minutes.

Please note: The West Village Testing Center is open for sentinel testing participants only.

Testing Off-Campus

If you would like to get tested at any time for any reason, especially after you travel, you’re encouraged to take advantage of free testing sites in Baltimore County and throughout Maryland.
