TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State University officials say a student has been found dead in a housing unit on the Tempe campus.

They say a male student was found deceased Monday at the Greek Leadership Village.

The name and age of the student weren't immediately released.

In a statement, ASU officials say police detectives are investigating the death and no other information is immediately 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.
