AMHERST, MA (WSHM) -

The University of Massachusetts has confirmed to CBS 3 that a 19-year-old student was found dead Saturday in his dorm room.

The university said Evan Jones, a sophomore from Milton, was found in his fourth-floor single room around 1 p.m.

Jones resided in the Washington Tower in the southwest residential area.

UMass said no foul play is suspected and that the residence hall is safe and secure.

Since the death was unattended, the university said the state medical examiner's office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause.

The university is providing counseling and assistance to residents of Washington Tower, as well as other students, faculty and staff.
