COVID-19 Resources for Students

UChicago Student Wellness—in collaboration with UChicago Medicine—is available to support students with COVID-19 testing, consultation, and follow-up care, as necessary.

COVID-19 Tests Due to Symptoms or Exposure

  • Symptomatic testing: Students can obtain symptomatic testing through the options below. Tests may be performed at no cost, however, insurance will likely be required.
    • Visit the City of Chicago’s website for symptomatic testing locations.
    • Students and employees with a UChicago Medicine MyChart account can login to complete a virtual screening. Students without a MyChart account can call Student Wellness (773.834.WELL) for screening and scheduling.
  • Asymptomatic exposure testing: To schedule an asymptomatic exposure test, login to the my.WellnessPortal. The Exposure Testing Program will operate on the Hyde Park campus, in the Walker Museum, Suite 309, located on the main quadrangle at 1115 E. 58th Street and operates Monday through Friday from 8a.m. until 4:45p.m. On Fridays from 8a.m. until 4:45p.m., testing will also take place at Chicago Booth’s downtown Gleacher Center location, in room 101.

COVID-19 Voluntary Surveillance Testing Program

In order to understand and mitigate the prevalence of COVID-19 on campus, the University is providing weekly screening for interested students, faculty, other academic appointees, and postdoctoral researchers and staff participants who will regularly be on campus through the Voluntary Surveillance Testing Program.

COVID-19 Mandatory Testing Program for Individuals

For Academic Year 2021-22, the University is requiring members of the campus community who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and who will be in University facilities in the Chicago area to participate in the University’s weekly COVID-19 Mandatory Surveillance Testing Program.

Key Resources

Symptomatic Testing Program and Follow-Up Care

  • Asymptomatic students who were exposed to COVID-19 can schedule a test through the my.WellnessPortal. The Exposure Testing Program will operate on the Hyde Park campus, in the Walker Museum, Suite 309, located on the main quadrangle at 1115 E. 58th Street and operates Monday through Friday from 8a.m. until 4:45p.m. Individuals should access the Walker Museum test site via the ground-level entrance located between Rosenwald Hall and the Walker Museum. Participants can either take the stairs or elevator to the third floor, then turn left and continue down the hallway to enter the test site. On Fridays from 8a.m. until 4:45p.m., testing will also take place at Chicago Booth’s downtown Gleacher Center location, in room 101.
  • Symptomatic students with a UChicago Medicine MyChart account can login to complete a virtual screening. Students without a MyChart account can call Student Wellness (773.834.WELL) for screening and scheduling.

If you are unable to come to the Hyde Park campus to be tested at UChicago Medicine, we encourage you to visit the City of Chicago’s website for a list of alternative symptomatic testing locations.

If you are in the U.S. but not in the Chicago area, we encourage you to check with your local or state department of public health. If you are outside the U.S., please consult with your local healthcare provider.

Before visiting an off-campus site, we encourage you to ask the testing site or your insurance company about whether there will be out-of-pocket costs associated with the test or associated visit/consultation.

Students who test positive for COVID-19 can receive follow-up care and guidance from clinicians at UChicago Student Wellness.  If your test was ordered by a clinician at UChicago Student Wellness, our clinic will contact you with your test results. However, regardless of where the test was conducted, students are encouraged to contact UChicago Student Wellness for care and support. 

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 and has been in a University owned or operated facility must contact C19HealthReport@uchicago.edu so that the health and safety of others in our facilities can be addressed. It is important to report your case, regardless of whether or not the test was conducted on campus. 

Physician/practitioner visits and most routine laboratory testing provided by UChicago Student Wellness are covered at no cost. Students screened by UChicago Student Wellness will be sent to the UChicago Medicine COVID-19 curbside testing site and be tested at no cost.

If you were tested at UChicago Medicine and have received a bill related to COVID-19 testing and you have questions, please call 844-843-3594 (option 2).

All members of the campus community are expected to adhere to the public health protocols outlined at goforward.uchicago.edu.  

UChicago Student Wellness remains committed to providing you with the care and support you need. Especially during this period of remote learning and throughout the resumption of campus operations, we’re here for you.
