Student Dies at University of Auckland Business School

A student has fallen to their death this morning in the UoA Owen G Glenn Building.

View-of-OGGB-from-Stanley-Street - Business School's purpose-built, architecturally designed Owen G Glenn Building dominates the Grafton Road side of the City campus, at the heart of Auckland's main commercial centre

Out of respect for the dead person’s family, a university spokeswoman mentioned that no further comment on the circumstances of the death would be made, and a police spokesman said the death was not suspicious and the matter had been referred to the coroner. This was a suicide. For whatever reason, a young individual took their own life. My condolences to this person’s loved ones.
