UChicago COVID-19 Testing Program

To help limit the spread of COVID-19, the University is taking measures to test, trace, isolate, and treat cases that may emerge.

The University’s testing approach includes three programs: (1) Exposure Testing for individuals who may have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19; (2) A Mandatory Surveillance Testing Program, for University employees and students who are not vaccinated and will be in University facilities in the Chicago area; and (3) A Voluntary Surveillance Testing Program for members of the University community who will be on the Hyde Park campus or another University facility in the Chicago area.

(Note: To participate in the testing program, you must first complete the consent and HIPAA authorization forms if you are not a current testing program participant or you haven’t received a COVID-19 test in the University’s testing program this academic year.)

Symptomatic Testing

If you are symptomatic and need a test:

  • Students and employees with a UChicago Medicine MyChart account can login to complete a virtual screening. Based on the results of the screening, you may be eligible to schedule an appointment for a drive-up or walk-in swab test at UCM’s Hyde Park curbside clinic.

  • Visit the City of Chicago’s website for alternative symptomatic testing locations.

If you test positive for COVID-19, please contact the University’s contact tracing team at C19HealthReport@uchicago.edu.
