Required Move-in COVID-19 Testing Information
All students living in campus housing, whether fully vaccinated or not, will need to do a University Health Services (UHS) Move-in COVID-19 test prior to getting keys and checking in.
In order to check in to your housing unit and get your keys, you must show proof that you have taken a UHS Move-in COVID-19 test.
Only UHS tests are acceptable for Move-in. COVID-19 tests from other organizations will not be accepted. There is no cost to you for UHS testing.
You must get tested on the same day that you move in. Even if you have taken a UHS COVID test on another day, and even if you have a green badge in the UC Berkeley mobile app, you still have to take a Move-in COVID-19 test from UHS on your Move-in day.
You must make an appointment in advance for your test. See instructions below.
Plan to schedule your test for 1-2 hours before Move-in
You should schedule your test for one to two hours before your one-hour time slot on your Move-in day. You should have already received an email with your assigned Move-in day, and selected your one-hour move-in time slot.
Testing will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on your Move-in day at the following two locations:
Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) Field House (convenient to Units 1, 2, 3, Blackwell, Martinez Commons)
Stadium (convenient to Foothill, Stern, Clark Kerr)
