The SHWC provides walk-in testing services for sexually transmitted diseases/infections (STDs/STIs). The walk-in testing option is the standard STD testing package, which includes urine tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea and blood tests for HIV and syphilis. This testing will be at the regular STD package price of $65, with payment due at the time of service, and is available at the SHWC without an appointment.Who can use the walk-in testing services?

The walk-in STD testing services will cost the same as the STD testing package ordered by a provider, which is currently $65, with payment due at the time of service. Please note, prices are subject to change without notice.
Since blood and urine samples will be taken for testing, we recommend you have a well-balanced meal and drink plenty of fluids before coming in for testing. You will also want to bring your student ID card to use the self-check-in station and cash, Apple/Google Pay, or credit/debit card to pay for testing.
Currently, walk-in STD testing services are only available in the SHWC on the 2nd floor of Chestnut Hall.
The SHWC will only contact patients with positive or abnormal results. We will not contact patients with negative results. You can pick up the results in-person at the SHWC on the 2nd floor of Chestnut Hall or call 940-565-2333 to get verbal confirmation of your test results if desired.
We will attempt to call patients with positive or abnormal test results. Please ensure the voicemail is set up on the phone number you provide at check-in. If we cannot reach you by phone to discuss your positive or abnormal test results, we will have to send a certified letter to the current mailing address on file with UNT, which may be your parents’ address.
We will call the number you listed on your testing paperwork and provide additional information about treatment and/or additional testing. If we cannot reach you by phone, we will attempt to send a certified letter to the current mailing address on file with UNT, which may be your parents' address.
If you have a positive or inconclusive result for HIV or Syphilis, we are required to submit your blood for additional state-mandated confirmatory testing. Students will be responsible for any additional charges resulting from this testing. The only exception for this automatic confirmation testing is for patients with a previously identified case of Syphilis.
Patients experiencing current symptoms or who have been notified that a recent partner has an STD are strongly encouraged to make an appointment with a medical provider for a more thorough discussion, exam, and/or treatment of your specific situation. To schedule an appointment, call 940-565-2333 or go online to myOSH.unt.edu.
No, walk-in STD testing services are currently only for the standard STD testing package, which includes chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and syphilis. Patients wanting only some of the tests or testing for other STDs not included in the standard package, such as herpes, should make an appointment with a medical provider to discuss their situation and determine what testing is recommended.
Depending on when you were possibly exposed to an STD, it might be too early for an infection to be detected. If you have questions about whether or not you should be tested, please schedule an appointment with a medical provider to discuss your specific situation in more detail.
Certain STDs, like herpes, can be tested for in different ways, and some test results are difficult to interpret without additional information from a patient. For these tests, it is important for a patient to discuss with a provider their specific situation to best determine what tests to perform and to have the provider able to interpret those results properly for the patient.
