Mandatory COVID-19 Testing First Week after Move-in

As we continue to work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, our campus will continue to require mandatory face coverings and COVID-19 testing.  Regardless of your vaccination status, ALL residents are required to take a COVID-19 test on one of the testing dates listed below. 


Dates: August 18-20, 2021
Times: 9 AM to 1 PM
Location: Top level of Lot 20


To schedule your COVID-19 test, log into the SFSU MyHealth portal using your SF State username and password by no later than Wednesday, August 18th at 9:00 AM.

  1. Once logged in, click on the ‘Appointments’ menu option and then click the ‘Schedule an Appointment’ button.
  2. Schedule the appointment by following the prompts for COVID-19 Testing.
  3. At the end of the booking process a QR code will be displayed and saved in the ‘Appointments’ menu option. You will need to bring the QR code (printed or on your phone) to your testing appointment.


The test is a non-invasive self-administered saliva-based test polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. In order for the test to be successful, do not eat, drink, smoke, brush your teeth, use mouthwash or lip products 60 minutes prior to your appointment. If your sample is rejected you will need to wait and be retested.


You will receive a text or email notification when results are ready to be viewed on the MyHealth portal. To view the results, click on the ‘View My COVID Test Results’ button on the homepage. Results are typically available within 24-36 hours of your scheduled appointment.
