FREE wall planners, warning of the symptoms of the killer bug meningitis, have been distributed to Huddersfield University students.
The Meningitis Research Foundation, a national charity, has distributed thousands of the planners to remind students of the tell-tale symptoms of the illness.
Last year, 220 people died of meningitis in England and Wales.
The planners were supplied to Huddersfield University accommodation and welfare officers to put up in halls of residence.
Young people living and working in large numbers in close proximity are the second most vulnerable group at risk of contracting meningitis and septicaemia.
The under-fives are the most likely group.
Among young adults who have contracted the diseases, 12% have died and many more have suffered after-effects, such as brain damage, deafness and amputation of limbs.
A vaccination for the C strain of the disease has reduced the prevalence of that type of disease.
But there is no vaccine for the B strain, which causes the most deaths.
A foundation spokeswoman said: "After identifying the need to help students to recognise the symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia, we developed a wall planner displaying them. It will act as a constant reminder to students throughout the academic year.
It also gives the foundation's freefone 24-hour helpline number 080 8800 3344.
