Community Testing

Syracuse University is offering COVID testing to Central New York residents, free of charge, at the Stadium Testing Center until Friday, Jan. 14.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday through Friday (closed Saturday).

The University’s testing is a PCR surveillance test and available to asymptomatic individuals. It’s important to note this test is not a diagnostic test. Any positive surveillance test result will need to be confirmed with a diagnostic test at an external provider. Individuals experiencing COVID-like symptoms should not visit the stadium; instead, they should contact their health care provider or visit a local urgent care facility. Individuals who plan to test at the Stadium Testing Center, be advised:

  • No appointments are necessary; simply visit the testing center at a time that is convenient for you during operating hours.
  • Parking is available at the Raynor Avenue Lot and Irving Garage; handicap accessible parking is available in the Quad Lot. A parking lot map can be accessed by visiting the Campus Maps webpage.
  • Enter the stadium through Gate N.
  • Do not eat, chew gum, drink, use mouthwash or use any tobacco products for 30 minutes before testing.
  • Deposit enough saliva to reach the line marked on the tube.
  • Only deposit saliva into the tube (no mucus or phlegm)!
  • Hydrate well earlier in the day to prevent dry mouth.
  • Masks must be worn at all times, except when actively depositing the test sample. Surgical masks will be available at the stadium.
  • Individuals will receive test results via email. Individuals who receive a positive surveillance result should contact their health care provider for guidance and to seek out a diagnostic test to confirm their status. To find a diagnostic test location near you, please visit the New York State test site webpage. Additional New York State COVID resources may be accessed by calling 888.364.3065 or visiting the New York State COVID-19 website.
  • Individuals who have tested positive in the last 90 days should not participate in this surveillance testing.
