Dear campus community,

I am filled with sorrow to be writing you with some very sad and difficult news. One of our undergraduate students has passed away and was found this morning in their residence hall. The University’s Department of Public Safety responded to the scene.

We have been in touch with the student’s family this afternoon. While we are working to understand the family’s wishes, we are not in a position to share the student’s name. This is very difficult news for any family to bear. Our university community grieves with them.

This news is also so very difficult for the student’s friends, housemates and classmates. Counseling and Psychological Services and residence deans have been offering support to them. Please seek the help you need during this time. Campus resources are available to anyone in our community seeking support.

I wanted to inform you as soon as possible of this loss. We will share more information when we are able.
