TEMPE, AZ — Arizona State University officials say a student has been found dead in a dorm on the Tempe campus.

They say a male student was found dead Monday at the Greek Leadership Village. The name and age of the student weren't immediately released.

Police say the student's death is not suspicious.

An ASU spokesperson said Monday night, "A male student was found deceased today in his room at the Greek Leadership Village. Detectives are investigating. There is no threat to campus. No further information is available."

Greek Leadership Village is located in the area of Rural and Terrace roads on the east side of ASU's Tempe campus. It opened in the fall of 2018 and houses about 950 fraternity and sorority members in a cluster of townhouse-style dwellings.

The village includes 27 Greek chapters in three- or four-story townhouses, each ranging from 19 to 41 beds for sophomores, juniors and seniors.
