Student Falls from Building at UConn

A UConn student is in critical condition after falling from the roof of the tallest building on the Storrs campus.

UConn Police received several 911 calls shortly before midnight on Sunday, reporting that a man had fallen from the roof of the Biophysics Building, 110-foot-tall building, on North Eagleville Road.

The student’s fall was slightly cushioned by a snow bank, according to UConn, but his injuries were described as very serious.

A patrol officer rushed to the scene and an ambulance transported the student to Windham Hospital, then Life Star helicopter flew him to Hartford Hospital, according to a statement from UConn.

It appears the student was alone on the roof in an area that is not open to public access and officials do not suspect foul play, but UConn Police are investigating.

UConn has been in touch with the student’s family.
