About Our Testing

Nebraska is taking a multiple approach to testing for COVID-19, to ensure our university can most effectively continue its important activities in teaching, research and service.

These testing approaches include free diagnostic testing for our university community, randomized mitigation testing to limit the spread of COVID-19 across our campus and the broader community, and antigen testing for athletes involved in competition in the Big Ten Conference.
