We were very saddened to hear that one of our first year students, Joshua Farraway, sadly passed away on Wednesday.
Joshua was a sports journalism student living at the Pittville Student Village.
Our thoughts are with Josh’s family, friends and the entire Pittville student community at this very sad time.
The University’s student services are based in the Helpzone at each campus, there is also a chaplain service at Pittville that can listen to any student in this difficult time. The Students’ Union are based at each teaching campus and can support students to find the right support service for them.
The welfare of our students and staff is our highest priority. We would urge any students affected to seek support from university services, friends or family.
