Test Kit Pick-up Sites

Community members experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should call Health Services (students) or a health care provider (employees) to discuss testing. For routine asymptomatic testing, self-administered rapid antigen test kits — and packs of KN95 masks — are available to all Brown students, faculty and staff.

Symptomatic Testing

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory illness, please stay home from class and other activities and contact the appropriate health specialist as listed below. Do not go on-campus or to Brown’s test kit pick-up sites, as you may risk infecting others.

  • For Students: Contact Health Services at 401-863-3953 or visit the Health Services website for information on open hours and methods of contact for after hours. You may email nursing@health.brown.edu with non-urgent questions.
  • For Employees: Contact your primary health care provider

Test Kit Pick-up Sites and Hours

For the Spring 2022 semester, Brown has transitioned to self-administered rapid antigen tests for asymptomatic testing*. Rapid antigen test kits and KN95 masks are available to Brown students, faculty and staff for pick-up at Alumnae Hall; and at South Street Landing during select hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Tuesday, April 5. You must have your Brown ID card with you to pick up supplies.

  • *(The exception is employees and students with approved exemptions from COVID-19 vaccination, who are still required to PCR test twice a week as they currently do. The University will provide instructions directly to these individuals on when and where PCR testing is available.)
