  • Whenever possible, if you are already on campus, consider walking over to the clinic for testing. 
  • If driving is necessary, parking is available in Lots 4, 5, 14, 25, and 26 along Ivy Lane and Western Way. Parts of Lot 21 are currently being used for campus construction.

Receiving Kits for Testing

All those participating in the asymptomatic testing protocol can pick up kits for self-collection during any open testing clinic hours (see tables above) or at the ticket window in the Frist Campus Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Graduate students who live in Old and New Graduate College can also pick up their kits from the Porter’s Lodge at the Graduate College.

Any undergraduate or graduate student, faculty or staff member coming to the testing clinic or the Frist Campus Center ticket window to pick up testing kits will be given a supply that will last at least two weeks, assuming twice-weekly testing for students and their eligible graduate dependents* and once-weekly for employees.

Several staff departments such as the PU Libraries, Building Services, University Services and Campus Dining have arranged for kit delivery that is specific to their departments. Other departments and offices can apply for kits for their operations.

Employees, unless you have received an email from or your supervisor about how kits will be distributed to you, please assume you will need to come pick up your kits at either the testing clinic or Frist.
