Rapid HIV Testing

The only way to know your HIV status is to get tested. Knowing your status gives you powerful information to keep you and your partner or partners healthy.

In partnership with Idaho Department of Health & Welfare HIV, STD & Hepatitis Section, Vandal Health Education is proud to offer free rapid antibody HIV testing to the U of I community. Testing will take place in a private location in the Vandal Health Education offices at the Student Rec Center.

CDC recommends everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once. People at higher risk should get tested more often.

HIV Testing FAQ

The test is a quick finger prick to collect a small amount of blood to run the test. Test results are instant. Depending on the results, you may need a blood draw test to confirm.

If the test is reactive, or positive, you will need a confirmatory blood draw test. These screenings are very accurate, and a great first step to know if that blood test is needed. Just know, if it is reactive, you're not alone, and we'll help connect you to next steps.

If the test is non-reactive, or negative, antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 were not detected. If you are concerned that exposure may have happened in the last three months, you'll want to test again after three months from your most recent exposure as it can take up to three months for antibodies to develop. You can request another appointment by using the form below.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

One in four college-age adults has an STI, and often times they don't know it. Getting tested regularly is important.
