We always make time for fun at Kutztown. Take a day trip to New York, sign up for the drag show, or catch a baseball game. Whether it’s a movie night or musical performance, campus events are a great way to meet new friends and experience something new.

Testing will occur every Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the East Gym of the Student Recreation Center. Registration is required (see below).
While testing is voluntary for all students and employees, we strongly encourage our campus community to take advantage of this service, especially those who are unvaccinated. CDC data shows that most of the recent positive cases are from those who are unvaccinated.
Please enter the Rec Center from the doors adjacent to the Rec Center parking lot (E-2). Do not enter from the main entrance of the Rec Center. The university will cover all costs of testing for all students and employees through this process.
Individuals who are 1) experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or 2) have been identified as a close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, should not be tested through this process. Students in these categories should contact the KU Health Center. Employees should contact Human Resources.
Registration is now available for COVID-19 testing (antigen rapid test) by clicking here – be sure to read instructions below while completing registration.
Specific times are not available. Test results will be emailed to student/employee approximately 15 minutes after being tested.
What Do I Need to Bring to Screening?
Please bring your KU ID. Those in need of a KU ID should contact the KU Card Office, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 107 Academic Forum, at 610-683-4825 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What If I Test Positive?
Students should first contact Clinical Services by phone at 610-683-4082 (when closed, email email@example.com). Employees should first contact Human Resources by phone (610-683-1353) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students who live on campus must return home to isolate if they test positive for COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status. Clinical Services, along with Housing and Residence Life, have identified limited facilities for resident students that cannot isolate or quarantine off-campus; approval of these accommodations will be on a case-by-case basis.
What If I Test Negative?
No further action is necessary.
Should I be Tested if I Previously Tested Positive in the Last 90 Days?
No. If you tested positive or have been diagnosed by a doctor as having COVID-19 within 90 days, you should not be tested during this process.
Should I be Tested if I Have Received the COVID-19 Vaccine?
Yes. Employees and students who received the COVID-19 vaccine are strongly encouraged to be tested to mitigate the risk to the campus community.
Information for Employees
Employees wanting to be tested during scheduled work hours should seek supervisor approval. Supervisors should be flexible to allow for employee testing. No leave time is required for testing during scheduled work hours. No overtime will be paid for testing outside of scheduled work hours.
How Much Will This Cost Me?
The university will cover all costs of testing for all students and employees through this process.
Questions can be directed to the Office of University Relations at email@example.com.
