Where to find a home test kit

Home COVID-19 test kits are available for free for students, staff and faculty while supplies last at the following locations. Tests will no longer be available at University Police. Test kits will be limited to one box (2 tests) per person once per week and University ID must be provided when picking up test kits. Currently test kit availability is extremely limited and we are working to acquire additional test kits for campus distribution.

How to report a positive home test


If you have a positive home COVID-19 test while you are in Binghamton, regardless of whether you live on or off campus:

  • Immediately put on a mask and avoid contact with other people.
  • Place your test device on a piece of paper. On the paper, write your name, your date of birth, the date you performed the test and one of the following: the date your symptoms started or the fact that you are having no symptoms.
      • Upload a photo of the paper and test device to the patient portal using the "COVID Positive Test Results" function.
      • Place the test device in a sealed plastic bag in case a medical professional requests to see it.
  • Immediately report your positive test result to the Broome County Health Department using this short survey
  • Isolate in the bedroom of your apartment until you are contacted by a University or other health official.
