COVID-19 Testing

The university is making rapid antigen tests available for faculty, staff, postdocs, and students at the following locations:

Arrillaga Family Dining Commons (AFDC)

  • 489 Arguello Way, Stanford
  • Pickup: 8:30AM – 4PM (M-F)
  • Closed on Federal and University holidays

Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S)

To pick up rapid tests, you will need your Stanford ID and cell phone. You will be asked to scan a QR code to display your pick-up authorization badge on your phone. Staff will check your badge before giving you the tests. If you don’t have a phone, a staff member will manually check your records to verify eligibility. You are able to pick up 4 kits per pickup and up to 8 kits per month.

We recommend testing after travel or attending large gatherings before returning to on-campus activities. Information on the FDA’s shelf-life extension of Flowflex brand tests can be found here and here. Faculty, staff, and postdocs can also obtain rapid antigen tests through their health insurance providers.
