Texas Tech University

Testing

Students

Students who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should take a home test, or if in on-campus housing, request one from their Community Advisor in the residence hall. Students may also visit one of the on-campus testing sites or schedule an appointment with Student Health Services.


The cost for testing provided through Student Health Services will be billed to insurance for those students that are covered. Insurance pays 100 percent of the testing costs. The self-paid cost for testing can be posted to a student's account through Student Business Services.


Faculty/Staff

Faculty and staff who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should take a home test or contact their primary care physician or make an appointment at the Texas Tech Physicians Family Medicine Faculty/Staff Clinic, located in the Student Wellness Center. To make an appointment at the Texas Tech Physicians Family Medicine Faculty/Staff Clinic, please call  806-743-2345.
