What is UMaine’s on-campus COVID-19 testing schedule?

Beginning May 9, UMaine COVID-19 symptomatic and asymptomatic self-administered tests are available 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m., Tuesday–Wednesday in the Lown Room, Memorial Union. There is no appointment necessary during these walk-in hours.

Please wear a mask when you pick up a test kit, especially if you are symptomatic.

The self-administered test kits can be dropped off Tuesday–Thursday in a clearly marked red cooler at the Memorial Union Information Desk. Test samples are collected at 5 p.m. every drop-off day. Any test kits dropped off after Thursday at 5 p.m. will likely be destroyed; in this case, you will not receive results.

You will continue to use PointnClick to self-register test kits and to see results; bring a smartphone, tablet or laptop, or take the test kit home to use a computer. Physical directions for kit registration online will also be stapled to each test kit.

Information about the self-administered kits is online.

Test results are typically available within 24 hours. Self-administered test kits dropped off after 5 on Tuesday and Wednesday may take up to 48 hours for results.

For assistance in using PointnClick, including accessing your test results, please visit the UMS PointNClick Web App User Guide or contact the US:IT Help Desk.

The University of Maine System will provide symptomatic testing for COVID-19 for its in-person students, staff and faculty during fall 2022 (participation in any on-campus experience constitutes being ‘in-person’). UMS may require asymptomatic screening testing periodically during the semester in response to the evolving pandemic. Participating in certain activities may also require asymptomatic screening testing, such as athletics.
