Color Platform

The Color platform will be used to streamline our testing process at MassArt. With this platform, users can:

  • Activate and submit test kit samples
  • Receive results
  • The campus can then track and report on campus health metrics

Create your Color account and Activate your test kit

    Before you come to campus, visit and create your account using your MassArt email address. Log in to your MassArt email to confirm your color account.If you have difficulty creating your Color account and are using your MassArt email, please contact for assistance.

    1. Activate your kit. When you're on campus and required to test, your test kit must be activated. Sign in to using your newly confirmed credentials.
