Students living in undergraduate housing can receive 4 free FDA-authorized at-home tests to their campus mailing address. To ensure you receive your tests, there’s just one important step you must take.
When requesting your tests through the online form, be sure to enter your name and address according to the instructions below, adding your UNI to your first name in the form. If you don’t follow the naming convention and address format, the U.S. Postal Service may not recognize you as a unique resident which will prevent you from receiving your free tests.
When entering your name into the form field, your first name should be hyphenated with your UNI. For example:
The following address and format should be used, where #### designates your UNI. Make sure you enter the address as shown below in the Shipping Address image.
