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 two programs: (1) Exposure Testing for individuals who may have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19; and (2) 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. The forms are available on the my.WellnessPortal and are required in order to schedule testing.)

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.
