Antigen and molecular COVID-19 testing options are provided on both Statesboro and Armstrong campuses. Please read the campus-specific information below to determine how to access our testing services.

Walk-up COVID-19 testing is currently available at Health Services on the Statesboro Campus, Monday through Friday, 9AM-12PM and 1PM-4PM.

No pre-registration is needed for walk-up testing in Statesboro.

Testing by appointment is only available to enrolled students with COVID-19 symptoms who had their COVID-19 symptoms evaluated by a Georgia Southern Health Services medical provider.

24/7 COVID-19 Testing Kiosks

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has placed two new COVID-19 testing kiosks on Georgia Southern University’s campuses in Statesboro and Savannah, allowing access to free COVID-19 testing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The testing kiosks are located in central areas, including:

  • Armstrong Campus Student Union
  • Statesboro Campus University Bookstore
  • Liberty Campus Memorial Drive entrance

The specimens are picked up daily and sent to an accredited lab for PCR testing. In many cases, individuals will receive notification of their test results by email or text within 48 hours of specimen collection.

Pre-registration for testing at the kiosks is not required, but available on the Test and Go site. There is no out-of-pocket cost for the tests provided through a DPH kiosk, but for those individuals with insurance, their insurance will be billed for the test. A map of kiosk locations and a short video about using the kiosks can be found on the DPH COVID Testing site.
