COVID-19 testing for students

On-campus testing at Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum

On-campus testing for the spring semester is available in Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum (east side). Students who have symptoms or had close contact with a positive case can schedule an appointment online at Thielen Student Health Center and must complete the pre-test questionnaire. Call 515-294-5801 to schedule an appointment, or make an online appointment.

Reporting positive COVID-19 test results

It is required that all students self-report using this form and self-isolate once they receive a positive COVID-19 test result. Self-reporting is a safe and confidential process and will allow ISU’s Public Health Team to provide support to those who test positive.
