The University of York has expressed its sadness at the death of Halifax student Chris Woodhead, who passed away last week.
The University Press Office, in a statement released today, said: “We are deeply saddened by the death of Chris Woodhead. He was a first year student in the York Management School and a member of Halifax College. His family are in our thoughts and we are offering support to those who knew him here.”
Karen Fritz, Provost of Halifax College, said: “Although only a few days into his time at the University, Chris was already settling in to College life and building new friendships with his housemates.”
“The College is a community and the loss of one of its members will be felt by all of us,” Fritz added.
