Free & Private Rapid HIV Test/HepC Test @ The RC

Monday, October 18, 2021
4:00pm – 7:00pm

Repeats monthly on the third Monday 3 times.

Storrs Campus
Rainbow Center; Student Union 403

The Rainbow Center is a UConn/Storrs campus spot to get a free and private Rapid HIV test and a HepC test which allows for results to be known within the half-hour, made possible with the generous support of the Risk Reduction Outreach program of Perception Programs, Inc., of Willimantic (http://www.perceptionprogram.org).

This test is free of charge and open to all, however there are approximately TEN spots available per day of testing! No appointments will be taken due to the need for privacy. Arrive early because testing is first come, first served. Numbers will be given out to individuals and people need to wait in the office. If a person leaves the office and their number is called, we can substitute another person at our discretion. If a person misses their opportunity to get tested because they need to leave, they can be tested on another day that we offer the testing.

The Rainbow Center is located in room 403 of the Student Union.

Test dates during the Fall 2021 semester are as follows:

Monday, September 27 @ 4:00pm – 7:00pm Wednesday, October 6 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm Monday, October 18 @ 4:00pm – 7:00pm Wednesday, November 3 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm Monday, November 15 @ 4:00pm – 7:00pm Wednesday, December 1 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm

One may always obtain free, rapid, and private HIV tests and Hepatitis C (HCV) tests through the Risk Reduction Outreach Program, a component of Perception Programs, Inc., which provides services to Windham and Tolland Counties. Its office is located at 90 South Park Street (use Young Street entrance) in Willimantic. The phone number is 860-450-7128.
