Free COVID-19 testing for the U-M Community

The U-M COVID-19 Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP) is a free, asymptomatic testing program for all U-M students, faculty and staff on the Ann Arbor campus.

Weekly testing is no longer required—although it is strongly encouraged—for most members of the university community who have an exemption from COVID-19 vaccination (U-M COVID-19 Vaccination Policy). The university may reinstate testing requirements for particular groups if necessary to address outbreaks during the semester.
