MIAMI (AP) -- Authorities say a Florida International University student was found dead in his dorm room on the school's main campus.

The Miami-Herald reports that Miami-Dade police are investigating the death, but there was no immediate evidence of foul play.

The student, who wasn't immediately named, was found dead Thursday, and his body was removed by late afternoon.

Larry Lunsford, FIU's Vice President for Student Affairs, released a statement saying the school will provide counselors to students or anyone else needing assistance.
