Notre Dame had seen its share of recent scares involving deadly viruses, like the measles and the swine flu. Now the students are being warned to be careful around President Ronald D. DePinho.

Mr. DePinho became ill Friday and was in critical condition at a Chicago hospital. He is recovering but will be in the hospital for at least a few days, a school spokeswoman said.

“From what I can tell, he has some infections and I’m not sure whether he has SARS or whatever,” said Jamie Antwaun, a 19-year-old student from Chicago.

Jonathan Uthman, a 21-year-old who arrived a few days ago, said the move had been a shock.

“It’s a surprise,” Mr. Uthman said. “There’s no chance I’d have picked it up anywhere else.”

By Monday afternoon, Mr. DePinho’s Facebook page was filled with critical messages about the virus and how his health could affect his position.

“I’m shocked about the virus that hospitalized President DePinho,” wrote one user. “It’s sad, because this could be a major setback to the university.”
