STI Testing in Dundee
STIs remain a huge issue in the student community and over the past few year’s there has been a rise in the number of cases. This is why it is very important that you protect yourself and know where to go to get tested when you need to.
There is a free and confidential chlamydia and gonorrhoea testing service on campus provided by the University of Dundee. Just head to the Support Hub in the Old Technical Institute building and drop in anytime Monday to Friday from 09:30am to 11:30am. Other services include Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland and Ninewells Sexual Health Clinic who both offer sexual health and HIV testing.

At DUSA we care about your sexual health and provide a selection of contraceptives completely free to all our students. You can pick them up from dispensers found around The Union, or ask a member of staff in The Hive. You can also find free condoms at the University Health Service located in the Support Hub at the Old Technical Institute. Both DUSA and the University provide latex free condoms for those with allergies.
