Students, faculty and staff will be given four test kits. To ensure the current supply is widely available to all members of the Longhorn community, please only request/accept the two self-kits at this time. As additional tests become available or you utilize both test kits you receive, we invite you to pick up more supplies.
The self-test kits being distributed are rapid antigen tests. They have high sensitivity and specificity and are similar to the types of tests used in the PCT clinics.
The self-test kits are provided from the state to the university for distribution to the Longhorn community.

Self-test kits distributed through the university are intended for current UT students, staff and faculty only.
The longevity of self-test kit distribution depends on supply and demand; however, we have sufficient resources to continue distribution of self-test kits for the foreseeable future.
