As of March 1 (the conclusion of the universal required re-testing period), the University is conducting random testing of between 1% and 2% of the University’s population of students and employees living, learning or working on campus as well as those who access campus.

At University Park, random testing is conducted at the Mount Nittany Club in Beaver Stadium and at 101 North Atherton St., the former FedEx Office (Kinko’s) building at the corner of North Atherton Street and West College Avenue.

At the Commonwealth Campuses, random testing for both employees and students is being conducted either through mail-in test kits or through Vault Health tests distributed on campus. A complete list of Commonwealth Campus test distribution locations is available online at
