CONWAY, S.C. (WBTW) — The death of a student in a Coastal Carolina University residence hall on Sunday appears to have been the result of natural causes, the Horry County Coroner’s Office said on Tuesday.
Authorities, including the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, began investigating after the student, died at Magnolia Hall.
“It is with sadness that we provide an update to you that a CCU student passed away,” the university said Monday in a statement. “There does not appear to be evidence of any threat to campus.”
The student’s name has not been released.
Coastal Carolina University issued an alert Sunday evening for police activity at Magnolia Hall but didn’t provide any other details. Community members were asked to avoid the area, and shortly after 11 p.m., the university said the police activity had cleared.
Magnolia Hall is located off University Boulevard.
