University spokesman Neil Tickner said that number was as of Tuesday and based on visits to the university's health center.
The university's plan calls for students suspected of having the flu to get "flu kits" with thermometers, ibuprofen, surgical masks, tissues, soap and Gatorade. They're also advised to stay away from classes.
The school is not specifically testing students for swine flu, so none of the cases has been confirmed.
The school enrolls approximately 37,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Classes began Aug. 31.
