Drop-off testing for those experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 is now available at IU Bloomington. The first pickup location opens today at the lower level of the East Garage, 150 N. Jordan Ave. This option is available for all IU students, faculty and staff.

How it works

  3. Pick up a test kit. Kits will be available until 5 p.m. Jan. 10 and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 11-14 at the lower level of the East Garage. Check the drop-off testing page at for additional hours and locations later this week.
  4. Register your kit and pair it with your IU account.
  5. Provide your saliva sample in the provided vial.
  6. Drop off your completed test in the drop box just inside the lower level of the East Garage or at 800 N. Indiana Ave.
  7. Results will be available in 24 to 48 hours. You’ll be notified via your IU email when your results are available, or you can check your results page.
