A 20-year-old University of Chester student has been found dead at halls of residence in the city.
His 'tragic' passing has been met with 'shock and disbelief' at the university.
It is third death of a UoC student since October.
The man, who is not from the North West or North Wales, passed away in the early hours of December 3.
Cheshire Police do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances around the incident.
A University of Chester spokesman said: "The thoughts of everyone connected at the University of Chester are with the man’s family.
“The student’s friends are receiving specialist support from the university.
“This tragic incident follows just weeks after the sudden deaths of two other students from natural causes and, understandably, the cumulative effect on students and staff is one of shock and disbelief."

“Sadly a 20-year-old man was pronounced at the scene. There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.”
