A first year Law student has been found dead on Frenchay Campus.

The student was found on Tuesday in his Wallscourt halls of residences.

Residents of the Frenchay Campus received an email on Tuesday afternoon, reading: “It is with great sadness that we must inform you that one of your fellow students passed away over the weekend in the university residences.

“The Police have informed the student’s family and we ask that you respect their privacy at this time.”

The university have reminded students of their Wellbeing practitioners and Accommodations Services staff. In the email, they added: “Our Wellbeing Service is located in F Block and they are available to offer support, or just listen.

“If you are worried about your upcoming exams, or if you feel unable to sit an exam, then please contact the Information Point to arrange a meeting with a Student Adviser.”

The latest death brings the total of student related deaths to six in Bristol universities this academic year. Three University of Bristol students were found dead in the first term of this academic year. A third-year UoB student was found only last month.
