Nottingham student Peter Joyner fell to his death from the Electrical Engineering tower block last Wednesday.
The second year Environmental Engineering student was in Cripps Hall in his first year, but had been living outside of halls through his second year. Rumours had been circulating for a number of days about the death of a student on campus, and the university has still not spoken officially on the matter.
However, Professor Nick Miles, Director of the Nottingham Mining and Minerals Centre in the School of Chemical, Environmental and Mining Engineering, did send an email to students within the department informing them of Joyner’s death. He included information about support and chaplaincy availability for those affected by the tragedy.
The coroner’s report is not due back until later in the month.
