We will provide testing for all students, faculty and staff who develop symptoms of COVID-19 at any time (diagnostic testing), as well as broader testing as needed for exposures to prevent spread within our community. 

Diagnostic testing

All COVID-19 testing for symptomatic individuals on the Danforth Campus will be provided at no charge to students, faculty and staff. Individuals with even mild symptoms – including those who have been fully vaccinated – should be tested for COVID-19. Members of the university community should call the COVID Call Center at 314-362-5056 to report symptoms or exposure and to arrange for a free test.

In addition, the 1234 Kingshighway site is available to all WashU employees, students and family members for asymptomatic testing at a cost of $50 per test (which covers the operational costs of the test). Members of the university community may schedule this testing here

Please note, the Kingshighway testing site will no longer be used for testing symptomatic or exposed employees. WashU employees who are symptomatic or have been exposed to a known positive should seek testing by calling the COVID-19 Exposure/Illness Hotline at 314-362-5056.
