On-Campus COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing through the UO's Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP) is available for all UO employees, students, and Lane County community members. MAP provides asymptomatic and limited symptomatic testing.

  • Masks are required at COVID-19 testing sites. Masks should be worn in line even if you are outside.
  • Individuals without symptoms can test inside McArthur Court. Appointments are strongly encouraged for asymptomatic testing.
  • Testing for individuals with mild symptoms, similar to the common cold, is available at the McArthur Court ticket booths. Individuals with symptoms should not go inside to test.
  • Symptomatic testing is offered as walk in only. Symptomatic testing will end at 5:30 p.m. Monday-Thursdays and 3:30 p.m. on Fridays unless otherwise noted.

Plan 20 minutes for the check-in and testing process.

MAP test results are available within 2-4 business days. This is not a rapid test.

Individuals should not sign up for MAP testing if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days.

UO students experiencing symptoms and in need of a medical evaluation, can receive COVID-19 testing through University Health Services (UHS). Self-test kits are no longer available for mildly symptomatic students from UHS.

UO Required Testing Program:

Effective April 25, the required testing program will be suspended due to Low COVID-19 Community Level and resumption of more normal campus operations. If our Community Level moves to medium or high, the UO will reassess the situation and work in consultation with public health authorities to determine if the required testing program should be reinstated.

Register for Testing

If you wish to use UO’s MAP asymptomatic testing, available dates and times will be posted on Thursdays for the following week on this page. Appointments can be made for asymptomatic testing only. Testing for mildly symptomatic individuals is available at the McArthur Court ticket booths.

The testing location maps and MAP registration link can be found below.

  • Registration is strongly advised for MAP so that you are scheduled for an appointment time.
  • Registration is required to see a provider at UHS. Students can make an appointment by calling 541-346-2770 or through the myUOHealth portal.
  • Walk-ins are permitted for MAP but may have longer wait times, as registered participants have priority. Walk in asymptomatic testing ends 30 minutes before closing.
    Please note: If appointments are available, you can register to test or walk in to an appointment up until the start time of an appointment time slot.
  • For individuals with mild symptoms and not requiring a medical evaluation, no appointments are required. Quantities are limited.

    Important Considerations

    • Accommodations for people with disabilities can be provided if requested in advance of a scheduled testing event. For MAP testing please contact c19map@uoregon.edu directly for these requests. ADA parking is also available at testing locations.
    • Patients who test positive will receive test results via email in the same way that negative results are reported. County health officials may also contact positive cases via telephone, in addition to the emailed results. For information on what your result means, please see our testing page.
    • MAP uses the saliva collection method for COVID-19 testing. Please see updated collection steps below and email c19map@uoregon.edu with any questions.

    Why Get Tested

    • Many people are asymptomatic carriers of the virus meaning they don’t know they are infected but could still pass the virus on to others. If you are asymptomatic, you can prevent further spread of the virus to your family, friends, and others in the community by getting tested for the virus, isolating, and cooperating with contact tracers.

    • Participating in MAP testing helps local public health officials and university leaders understand the current situation so they can develop and enact strategies to suppress the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

    • Testing provides a snapshot in time, giving information needed to identify pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. This information allows individuals to isolate or quarantine and reduce spreading COVID-19 in the community.


    What You Need to Know

    • MAP testing is FREE.

    • Testing is conducted primarily through a self-collected saliva sample or a shallow nasal swab (anterior nares) may be offered.

    • For MAP testing, do not eat, drink, brush teeth, chew gum, or use tobacco within the 30 minutes prior to your test.

    • Masks are required at testing sites. Masks should be worn in line even if you are outside.
    • Individuals should not test through MAP if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days.

    • Symptomatic testing is available for individuals experiencing mild viral symptoms and who do not need a medical evaluation.

    • Appointments are not needed for symptomatic testing.

    • UO students experiencing viral symptoms and who are unsure whether they need a medical evaluation, should contact UHS at 541-346-2770 or their health care provider to determine if and where they should be tested for COVID-19.


    What to Expect at Your MAP COVID-19 Test

    Asymptomatic Testing: On testing day, please show up to the testing site at your scheduled time. Walk in testing is also available but may require a slightly longer wait time depending on current testing capacity.

    After you enter the building, you will go to the testing check-in table where you will provide your confirmation QR code or register to test as a walk in. Testing personnel will verify your name and other information about you, such as your date of birth. Testing personnel will also prepare your sample collection tube, which you will be asked to take with you to the sample collection station.

    The sample collection personnel will give you a collection cup and ask you to collect your saliva sample following this process:

    1. Allow saliva to pool in the front of your mouth for about 30 seconds. This can be done passively, no need to snort or gurgle. It may help to think of foods that you enjoy, lemons, or move your jaw like you are chewing.
    2. Once you have some liquid built up in your mouth, gently spit that liquid into your collection cup.
    3. Depending on the volume, you may need to repeat this process 2-3 times.
    4. You may then pass your collection cup to the sample collector who will transfer it into the sample tube.
    5. Occasionally nasal swab tests may need to be offered. The sample collector will walk you through the collection steps.

    Symptomatic Testing: Symptomatic testing is available by walk in only. On testing day, please line up at the McArthur Court ticket booths. You will register for your test on-site before receiving a test kit and further instructions. Once you have completed the test, return as directed. 

    Any persons on UO property must follow current mask policies. Masks should be worn in line, even if you are outside. At this time, all MAP testing takes place at McArthur Court. Asymptomatic testing takes place inside. Symptomatic testing is available at the McArthur Court ticket booths.

    To prepare for the test, do not eat, drink, brush teeth, chew gum, or use tobacco within the 30 minutes prior to your test.

      You will receive your results within 2-4 days.
