University Testing Center
The University will have an on-site testing center located at Gate D of Notre Dame Stadium for those with symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses, or for those who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Testing will be free to all currently enrolled Notre Dame students, all faculty teaching or conducting research on campus during the fall semester, and all staff. The campus site will supplement testing available to all members of the campus community through their physicians’ offices and other locations in the county. All testing at the site will be done by appointment only through University Health Services or the Notre Dame Wellness Center.
