Clive Macdonald, director of student and learning services at Sheffield Hallam, said the university was "working closely" with the HPA. He said that the "necessary steps" had been carried out to find people who might be at risk of meningitis although the cause of death had not yet been determined. He added that those people had been informed and been told to see their doctors as a "precautionary measure" to keep risks to a minimum.
