This free service is available to everyone who applies with an @tcd email address. Kits are available to all students on the Island of Ireland. If you have any questions or need to speak to someone regarding this process, please contact the Welfare & Equality Officer Leah at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The rapid tests provided by TCDSU may not be able to detect recent exposures so if you think you have recently been exposed to HIV and are not currently on effective treatment, seek an emergency appointment at St. James’s GUIDE clinic where you will be able to avail of Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP). 

Alternatively, the MPOWER Programme at HIV Ireland offers self testing kits at: https://mpower.hivireland.ie/self-test-order/. Applications open every Tuesday at 1pm.
