Return to Campus Testing - The University of Tulsa

Return to Campus Testing

In order to ensure the health and continued safety of our community, and in response to these recent developments, TU require unvaccinated students, regardless of residency status, and vaccinated students living in residence halls and/or Greek Housing to complete a return-to-campus COVID-19 viral test:

Unvaccinated students
Unvaccinated students, regardless of residency status, must complete a return-to-campus COVID-19 test no later than Tuesday, Jan. 11, and provide proof of a negative result to the university.

  • Students are encouraged to test at home prior to arriving on campus using any approved viral test (PCR, rapid antigen or over-the-counter at-home test).
  • Proof of a negative test result must be uploaded using the COVID-19 testing verification form.
  • If you are unable to test at home, rapid antigen tests will be available on campus with no out-of-pocket expense on Tuesday, Jan. 11. Testing will be by appointment only. Please make your appointment here.
  • Students who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days or who are enrolled in all online classes and do not live on campus are exempt from this testing requirement.

Students living in residence halls and Greek housing
Students residing in residence halls and Greek housing, regardless of vaccination status, must complete a return-to-campus COVID-19 test no later than Tuesday, Jan. 11, and provide proof of a negative result to the university.

  • Students are encouraged to test at home prior to arriving on campus using any approved viral test (PCR, rapid antigen or over-the-counter at-home test).
  • Proof of a negative test result must be uploaded using the COVID-19 testing verification form.
  • If you are unable to test at home, rapid antigen tests will be available on campus with no out-of-pocket expense on Tuesday, Jan. 11. Testing will be by appointment only. Please make your appointment here.
  • Students who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days as well as students who have received a booster shot are exempt from this testing requirement.
  • Isolation housing on campus is limited. Students should, therefore, have an isolation plan in place in case they contract COVID-19.

In addition to these safety measures, if you have not yet done so, it remains critical that you consider receiving the vaccine and the booster shot to help ease the spread and lessen the symptoms of COVID-19. Vaccination remains our best protection against serious illness and death and best safeguards our ability to remain together in person.
