Resident Students Informed of Post-Thanksgiving Testing Policy

Campus shot

Marisa Bisiani, Assistant Vice President for Student Health, Wellness, and Prevention Services, has issued a message to resident students regarding on-campus testing after the Thanksgiving holiday. The message reads as follows:

Coming Back Safe and StrongAs we previously communicated, if you are living on campus anytime from November 23-January 30, you must confirm that HERE by November 20.  Residents on campus during this time period must participate in free on-campus COVID testing two times per week, except for the holiday weeks when residents will be tested one time each week.  Participation in this testing is required in order to live on campus.

The testing location for all residents during this period is the GLS/HDV Center, 2nd floor.  Please refer to this testing schedule to view your assigned dates according to your residential location or quad, and to schedule your appointments.  Please schedule each appointment at least 2 days in advance. 

You must get tested at the GLS/HDV Center testing location. We do not accept external testing. Stony Brook University’s Student Health Services will cover any test costs not covered by your health insurance.

Important Information:

  1. If you miss your appointment on your assigned day, you must schedule your appointment for the next available day.
  2. If you do not participate in required testing two times per week, you will be suspended from living on campus.
  3. If you are a student-athlete, do not sign up for an appointment; instead, follow the testing schedule provided by the Sports Medicine team in Athletics.
  4. If you have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days, and you have provided Student Health Services with a physician’s note indicating you’re free of infection, do not sign up for an appointment.

Please refer to these FAQs for more information.  If you have any questions, please contact Student Health Services at (631) 632-6740 or chat with us. 

Thank you for keeping our campus community safe and healthy!
