Update from TCD UniCoV Team to staff and students

6 May 2022

Dear College Community,

We would like to remind you that a free twice-weekly COVID-19 antigen testing or saliva LAMP PCR testing is available through UniCoV up until 12 May 2022. Such tests assist with the early identification of SARS-CoV-2 infection thereby helping to stop the spread of the virus. This will help protect yourself, your household and your community against COVID-19.

COVID-19 antigen test kits and saliva sampling kits will be available for collection from kiosks located in the Arts Building Concourse and Hamilton/Panoz Building between the hours of 11.30am – 3.30pm daily.

Saliva samples for LAMP PCR testing are collected from stations at 11am on both Mondays and Thursdays and are tested same day. Samples can be deposited at any time. However, providing samples closer to the collection time ensures any positive cases are flagged in a timelier manner.

Remember, testing alone does not stop transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and development of COVID-19. Please continue to follow the latest public health guidance.

To register for the programme, further details are available below and through the TCD UniCoV website. Please address any issues to the TCD UniCoV team via the following email:
