Free rapid antigen tests (RATs)

Published: 22nd July 2022

As part of the WA Government’s free rapid antigen test (RAT) distribution program, students at Murdoch University will have access to 20 free nasal swab RATs.


RATs are a quick and convenient way to detect COVID-19. With increasing cases of new COVID-19 variants in the community, the chance of reinfection is more likely. Keeping a supply of RATs is recommended in case you start to feel unwell and need to get tested.

Thanks to support from the Guild, you will be able to collect your free RATs at our South Street campus by visiting the Tavern or Café Kadjininy, or at our Mandurah campus by visiting Sir Walter's Mandurah.

Collection points:

  • Café Kadjininy: Geoffrey Bolton Library, Monday to Friday from 8am-3pm.
  • The Tavern: Building 418.2.001, Monday to Friday from 11am-6pm.
  • Sir Walter’s Mandurah: Building 101, Monday to Friday from 8am-12pm.

The RATs will be packed individually, so we recommend bringing a bag with you.
