No other details were given about the student’s death.

In a statement, the university extended “its sincerest condolences to Kyle’s family and friends.”

The six-floor Hardenbergh Hall is one of the university’s River Dorms, overlooking the Raritan River.

On Friday, graduate student Akash S. Taeja was found dead on the Busch campus in Piscataway. Foul play is not suspected in either case, according to officials.
