In a statement on the University website, the school says the students experienced symptoms on Monday night and test results came back positive on Tuesday morning. University Health Services and the and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety are working to notify anyone who came in contact with student so they can be treated.

However, state law requires all Princeton students living in dorms to have received the meningitis vaccine, which protects against most strains of the bacteria.

The Princeton Univeristy is encouraging members of the University community to pay increased attention to personal hygienic practices in light of this confirmed case.

Bacterial meningitis is contagious, but generally is transmitted through direct exchange of respiratory and throat secretions by close personal contact, such as coughing, sharing drinks, kissing and being in close proximity for an extended period according to the University.
