STI & HIV Testing


  • The University Health Center offers STI and HIV testing that is inexpensive, easy and given in a non-judgmental environment.
  • Most STIs have no signs or symptoms or only mild signs that can be easily overlooked.
  • The only way to know if you have a STI is to get tested.
  • If you are sexually active, it is recommended you get tested annually for common STIs and HIV.

Steps for Getting Tested

  1. Call the University Health Center (UHC) at (402) 472-5000 to talk to a nurse about STI testing.

  2. Make an appointment to get tested.

  3. When you arrive at UHC, check in at the front desk. You will then proceed to the Laboratory on the second floor of UHC.

  4. Your test results will be sent to UHC up to three days after testing. A UHC nurse will call you to discuss your results.
