According to Metro UK, the body of the girl, 18, was found shortly after 8.30am on Sunday at the campus in Canterbury.
Molly Hope, a fellow student, was working at the halls of residence as a welcome helper and saw emergency vehicles when she arrived.
‘We were moving everyone in and it was a really positive and happy experience on Saturday,’ she told student newspaper Inquire.
‘We arrived Sunday morning to continue helping students moving in but there were ambulances and police cars outside of Tyler Court.
‘We were informed that there had been an incident and access to the flat in question was blocked off.
‘We were told to move aside as the ambulance crew left the premises. Shaken students started coming out of their rooms and we had to calm them down.’
Details of the cause of death have not been released.
Kent University said in a statement: ‘We can confirm the death of a female first year student at our Canterbury campus on 17 September.
‘Police are not treating the death as suspicious. Next of kin have been informed and support is available for students and staff.
‘Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.’ SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
