Where can I get an HIV test?
Testing for HIV is available at Student Health Services. A fee will be charged. Call 541-737-9355 to schedule an appointment.
The tests commonly used to detect HIV infection look for antibodies produced by your body to fight HIV. Most people will develop detectable antibodies within 3 months after infection, the average being 20 days. In rare cases, it can take 6-12 months. If you are concerned that you may have HIV, please get tested again.
Free and anonymous HIV testing is available at the following Corvallis locations:

Tuesdays from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. (Enter from rear of church)
