Public Health England have confirmed a case of Meningitis B in a Bristol University student.
The student is currently receiving treatment and is recovering well.
PHE says antibiotics are being given to students who share the same accommodation block to reduce the risk of any additional cases.
The health organisation say apart from the very close contacts that are being offered antibiotics, "there is no need for a wider group to take antibiotics".
Public Health England South West is encouraging people to familiarise themselves with the symptoms of meningitic B.
