Coronavirus testing and vaccinations for students and staff

Getting vaccinated

It is really important that everyone gets fully vaccinated. Being fully vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and others against Covid-19. You can find more information and book your vaccinations on the NHS website.

Vaccination centre on campus

There is a vaccination centre on our Mile End campus in the Temporary Building in Geography Square. You can book an appointment and receive the vaccination.

We also offer booster jabs to anyone who is eligible, the criteria for which can be found here.

Home testing kits

Lateral flow test kits are no longer available for collection on campus. Staff and students can order test kits online, or collect them from the nearest participating pharmacy

What to do if you receive a positive test

If a member of the Queen Mary community is diagnosed with Covid-19, they should follow Government advice on self-isolation, booking a test and self-care. We also ask that they inform the University (email (for students) and (for staff)) and follow any instructions we may send.

Although it is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive Covid test, you are still advised, if you test positive, to stay at home.


No. We only ask that if you get in touch if you test positive.

If you still feel unwell after a negative test, you can stay at home until you're feeling better. A negative test is not a guarantee you do not have COVID-19 and there‚Äôs still a chance you may be infectious.

If you live with or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, you are now no longer legally required to self-isolate irrespective of vaccination status.
