The dead body of a 28-year-old student was found Sunday morning at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, officials said.

"The State Police have determined that the death is non-suspicious," the university said in a statement. "The university has reached out to the student's family as part of our campus response. We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and offer our condolences to the student's family and loved ones."

The body was found in a bathroom in Ball Hall on the university's North Campus, said Lowell Police Captain Timothy Crowley. The student, who was not identified, was enrolled at UMass Lowell but did not live on campus, he said.


Ball Hall is an academic building that houses offices, labs, and classrooms for the plastics and electrical and computer engineering departments, according to the university's website.

The cause of death was not immediately known. UMass Lowell, State Police, and the Middlesex district attorney's office are investigating.
