Although all HIV/HepC testing dates at the Rainbow Center have been cancelled, our testing provider has made another arrangement for folx to be tested for HIV. Unfortunately, the HepC in-home testing is not available.
We have been able to expand the number of days AND the number of slots for each day!!!
The Rainbow Center and is a UConn/Storrs campus spot to get a FREE and private Rapid HIV/AIDS test and a Rapid Hepatitis C test which allows for results to be known within the half-hour! The tests are free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Risk Reduction Outreach program of Perception Programs, Inc., of Willimantic. The tested sample comes from a simple finger prick.
Test dates during the Spring 2020 semester have been cancelled for the remainder of the semester:
- Wednesday, February 12 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm
- Wednesday, March 11 @ 10:00am – 1:00pm

Monday, March 23 @ 5:00pm – 8:00pmCANCELLED Wednesday, April 27 @ 10:00am – 1:00pmCANCELLED
This test is free of charge and open to all, however there are approximately 12 spots available per day of testing, allowing for 30 minutes for each test! 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.
The Rainbow Center is located in Room 403 on the fourth floor of the Student Union.
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.
