COVID Resources on Campus
Beginning Friday, Aug. 20, 2021, UTEP and the City of El Paso will be working together to offer a new mega-testing site for COVID-19 on UTEP property.
Students, employees and the general public can stop by the COVID-19 Mega-Testing Site at 3333 N. Mesa at Kern Drive. This public site will offer both drive-up and walk-up testing.
Testing options include nasal or saliva PCR tests. Results will be available within 24-48 hours.
The COVID-19 Mega-Testing Site will be open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday-Saturday. The only drive-up entrance to the site will be from Sun Bowl Drive at Kern Drive. No appointment is necessary but online pre-registration at this link for both drive-up and walk-up testing is recommended to save time. Please use caution when driving in the area, which may become congested.
Dedicated Drive-Up Lane for UTEP Miners
In addition to lanes for the general public, the mega-testing site will offer two dedicated drive-up lanes for UTEP students, employees and their household members in the same vehicle. A valid Miner Gold Card is required to access the UTEP lanes.
Convenient walk-up COVID-19 testing will be available for individuals without a vehicle near the entrance to the building on site. Pre-register at this link to save time.
On-Campus Testing for UTEP Students
Current UTEP students also have access to free on-campus testing in the UTEP Student Health and Wellness Center located in Union Building East, first floor. Click here for more information.
