Book your COVID-19 test

We want to keep LSBU as Covid secure as we can and we are offering Covid tests to all students.

For students moving back into accommodation in London (either rented accommodation or Halls), please check the government travel guidance. We will be sending specific information to those living in Halls, to ensure that you are as safe as possible.

For everyone coming onto campus for studying, the advice is to take a Covid test through either home or community testing at least one day before travel back to term time accommodation and coming back to campus.

Once you have returned the guidance asks that all students and staff take three supervised Lateral Flow Devices (LFD) tests 3 to 4 days apart. Following that, it is recommended that you be tested two times a week throughout the rest of the summer term. This can be at our test site or using a home kit. We will make home kits available from our Southwark campus testing centre. Please read the FAQS below.

Show you love LSBU by booking your test and helping to keep your friends, family and our community safe.

Where is the testing site?

Testing will take place at our testing centre operating inside LSBU’s Rotary building on the Southwark Campus next to the Clarence Centre. Due to road closures in the area please enter Rotary Street from Borough Road or walk through the Clarence Centre, out in to the Courtyard and then in to the Rotary building. The orange lines on this map will show you the route in.
