The University of Connecticut has identified a student who died last week on the Storrs campus as 19-year-old Joy Iwuagwu.

Iwuagwu was pronounced dead on Jan. 26 after having what school officials described as a “medical emergency” in her dorm room, the Connecticut Post reported Friday.

University public safety officials were called to the North residence complex around 1:25 p.m., according to the report.

“Upon arrival, they were directed to a room in which the resident had been found unresponsive,” UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said.

Campus fire officials gave emergency care to Iwuagwu until Windham Hospital EMS arrived and pronounced her dead, the Post reported.
