International Arrivals to the UK

The testing you require when you arrive in England depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive. Please see the latest government information for the rules on travel to England from another country during coronavirus (COVID-19). 

As a University of Bristol Student or staff, your health is our number one priority. Please take a look at the coronavirus testing options below complete with our convenient and flexible sample collection options.

  • If you live in University halls of residence you must select "Campus Delivery" on check-out and your testing kit will be waiting for you on arrival at your accommodation.
  • If you live in private accommodation off-campus you must select "Free Shipping" on check-out and your testing kit will be posted to your home address. 

For quicker results you can drop off your sample/s at the on-campus collection points. We would highly recommend using the drop-off locations for the quickest and most efficient service.

Sample drop off points (to drop off your swabs after you have done your test):

  • Clifton Hill House, Lower Clifton Hill, BS8 1BX
  • The Hawthorns, Woodland Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 1UQ

Please note that kits are limited to one per person. Please do not order more then one kit.
