Many students are interested in being tested for HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. The University of Wyoming Student Health Service offers testing for HIV. The screening testing performed is for the antibody that your immune system develops against HIV, not for the virus itself. Appointments available are for students eligible to use the Student Health Service – all full-time students and those part-time students who purchase the Optional Benefit Package.
There are two ways to be tested for HIV: rapid and conventional. Both require a counseling visit with a member of the Student Health Service medical staff. Rapid and conventional testing requires a blood specimen. More details about each test:
The Student Health Service is a knowyo testing site. You can access the knowyo website (http://knowyo.org) and obtain a voucher which provides free testing for certain STDs.
Alternative sites for HIV testing in Laramie are: Laramie Reproductive Health, 412 S. 21st St., 745-5364; and Albany County Public Health, 609 S. Second St., 721-2561.
