Police are investigating a death at a construction site located at the core of the University of British Columbia campus.

According to University RCMP, the body was discovered early this morning on the side of the future UBC Gage South Student Residence and bus layover facility being built at the new bus loop.

This site is next to the Student Recreation Centre and new Aquatic Centre.

The deceased individual has not been identified; it is not known if the person is a worker or a student.

Few details are available at this time.

To allow for the investigation, Student Union Boulevard has been closed and bus routes 44, 84, and the community shuttles have been rerouted to University Boulevard’s stops 12 and 13.

UBC is asking the public to respect police lines.
