Covid-19 University Early Alert Service

For all staff of the Collegiate University 

Testing for COVID 19: Early Alert Service (EAS)

We can confirm testing for COVID-19: Early Alert Service (EAS) will open on 20 August for all staff of the University and colleges.

The opening on Thursday begins the initial phase of an important opportunity to test the service while offering protection and reassurance to staff ahead of the next academic year. It will be available to any staff member holding a University card if they have symptoms associated with COVID-19 (minor or major).


The online booking service is now live for the first central testing site in the city centre at the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter (ROQ). Tests can be booked via the COVID testing page  from Thursday and FAQs have been developed in response to enquiries staff may have about the service.


For more information about the EAS and the University’s broader plans to protect the health and wellbeing of all staff and students, please consult the COVID-19 Response website.
