Important Message to the Campus Community - Nov. 13, 2017

Members of the Campus Community:

It is with regret that we share that in the early morning hours of Monday, Nov. 13, an individual with no known affiliation to the University died by suicide in the area of the parking structure. UPD University Police and the San Diego County Sheriff responded to a 911 call at approximately 3:16 a.m. The Parking Structure and Lot N were closed during the investigation but are now open.

Our thoughts are with the individual and their family.
