Registering with Bergen New Bridge

Bergen New Bridge Medical Center is our on-campus testing partner. If you have not yet registered with Bergen New Bridge for testing purposes, you must do so before you can schedule an appointment and be tested. Register now.

You MUST use your TCNJ email address when registering and in all communications with the company. You must also provide your first name (no preferred name or nickname), last name, date of birth, and current insurance information.

Bergen New Bridge will bill your personal health insurance plan for the cost of testing. Whatever cost is not paid by your insurance plan will be paid by TCNJ, but the bill must go through your health insurance plan first.

If you have already registered for testing, you do not need to register again.

Testing Location

The testing site is located in the Decker Hall Social Space. There are directional signs posted in the Decker Hall area; please enter using the back door of Decker Hall. Remember to bring your TCNJ ID card for access to the building. You must make an appointment to be tested.

Testing Hours:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 7 a.m.–noon

Tuesday and Thursday: 1–6 p.m.

Scheduling And Appointments

Appointments for testing are required and can easily be scheduled online. Arrive no earlier than five minutes before your appointment time. If you cannot keep your appointment, use the reschedule button at the bottom of the appointment confirmation page to change your appointment to another day. Please try to plan ahead and schedule as many of your fall semester testing dates as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I don’t feel well?

If you are not feeling well, do not come to campus and do not go to Decker Hall for testing. Instead, stay home, isolate yourself, and update your Roar app.

Students should contact Student Health Services at 609.771.2889 during business hours (MF: 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m.) for evaluation or contact a healthcare provider of their choice.

What if I’m required to be tested and prefer to have that done off campus?

Off-campus testing is permitted. Both antigen and NAAT/PCR test results (nasal swab or saliva) are acceptable. Antibody test results are not acceptable and do not exempt those who are required to submit for testing. Likewise, at home “do-it-yourself” testing kits are not acceptable and do not exempt those required from testing.

Students should upload off-campus test results to OWL. The test record must include name, date of test collection, and result. Please log in into OWL and, at the top, select upload and read the instructions carefully. At the bottom of the page, there is a drop-down box where you will choose the document you are uploading. Select “COVID-19 Test Report” and click “upload.”

Please note: TCNJ will not pay any out-of-pocket costs you may incur for testing performed at an off-campus test site, including Campus Town.

I was tested off campus. What should I do if my result was positive?

Students should upload their test results to OWL and email immediately. Please wait for a campus representative to contact you with instructions before you come back to campus.
