The University of the Sunshine Coast has advised its students and staff that a USC Dietetics student was recently diagnosed with measles.
It has been confirmed that the student was infective while on campus on 17, 19 and 20 March.
As measles is a highly infectious illness with the potential to cause serious complications, people experiencing any symptoms of the disease are urged to consult a doctor as soon as possible.
For the benefit of the health of the USC community, they are also advised not to attend university.
