Free & Private Rapid HIV Test/HepC Test @ the RC5:00pm
Monday, January 27th, 2020
05:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Storrs Campus Rainbow Center; Student Union 403The Rainbow Center is a UConn/Storrs campus spot to get a free and private Rapid HIV/AIDS test and a HepC test which allows for results to be known within the half-hour, made possible with the generous support from the ARROW (AIDS Risk Reduction Outreach Worker) 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 TWELVE 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. Dates for the 2019-2020 Academic Year will be:
1. Third Monday evening of each month @ 5pm – 8pm: Sep 16, Oct 21, and Nov 18
2. First Wednesday of each month @ 10am – 1pm: Sep 4, Oct 2, Nov 6, and Dec 4
1. Fourth Monday evening of each month @ 5pm – 8pm: Jan 27, Feb 24, Mar 23, and Apr 27

A Message from the Rainbow Center
Hello LGBTQIA+ and Allied Community!
Everyone is welcome at the Rainbow Center. We pride ourselves on a family-like environment with academic and social opportunities. We have been serving UConn's diverse communities of gender identities, gender expressions, and sexualities since 1998. The fun and amazing staff provides resources and services to the wider campus community of students, faculty, staff, and local residents. We are especially excited to introduce our new Director, Kelsey O'Neil (they/them/theirs). To read Kelsey's bio, please check out our Meet the Staff page.
This is the Rainbow Center's 20th Anniversary. Update your contact information with the Foundation to recieve updates about events we are planning to celebrate. Since our founding, the Rainbow Center has been named one of the best 100 gay-friendly campuses in the country, and received a 4.5 out of 5 rating on the Campus Pride Index Report. We'd love for you to join us at the Rainbow Center Institute, an Out to Lunch Lecture, or upcoming event to celebrate.
Rainbow Center News
It is with heavy hearts that we at the Rainbow Center must report the passing of Judge Robert I. Berdon, the patriarch of the family that established the David Daniel Berdon Memorial Fund that offers an annual scholarship through the Rainbow Center. We are grateful for the legacy that the Berdon Family has bestowed upon our community at the University of Connecticut and offer our deepest condolences to the Berdon Family.
