STI & HIV Testing.

NUSU Welfare & Support Centre.

You can get tested at the Students' Union.

Our Welfare & Support Centre also provides HIV+ testing appointments for students to access, where you can also talk to a sexual health adviser from MESMAC and/or Shine. The test, although booked with NUSU is confidential between you and MESMAC & SHINE who follow their own privacy policy. They will also offer further support depending on the test result and can help you access other services if required. 

During the appointment you can also discuss sexual health in general, any worries you may have, information on how to stay safe, and how to take the HIV+ and STI DIY tests. 

To book a place or enquire about the service, message Kay here
