University of Sussex testing site

  • Government-backed asymptomatic testing site to open on the University of Sussex’s campus in Falmer, to help protect people most at risk 
  • Partnership between University of Sussex and NHS Test and Trace, to work towards going back to as normal a way of life as possible.
  • Testing of students to begin on Monday 30 November

An asymptomatic testing site (ATS), using lateral flow tests, is launching at the University of Sussex in Falmer, as part of the Government’s UK-wide continuing drive to increase the availability of mass testing.

The University of Sussex is working with NHS Test and Trace to set up an on-campus ATS so that students without symptoms, who may be infectious but unaware, are able to get tested and asked to self-isolate if they are, or reassured quickly if they are not.
