A Cal Poly student was found dead inside Poly Canyon Village on Monday night.
University police were called to the complex shortly before 8:30 p.m., and when they arrived, they found the student inside an apartment, according to university spokesman Matt Lazier.
Cal Poly has identified the student as Brett Tyler, a junior who was majoring in business administration, according to a release from university President Jeffrey Armstrong that was sent to Cal Poly students, faculty and staff.
Tyler died of natural causes, according to the release. Lazier had earlier told The Tribune that there were no signs of foul play.
