The body of a student has been found at a New Zealand university, up to two months after he died.

The remains were discovered at the University of Canterbury, in the city of Christchurch, after other residents noticed a smell coming from his room.

The victim has not been named. But because of the length of time the body was in the room, a police Disaster Victim Identification team was needed to identify him, local media report.

The cause of death remains unclear.

The university said it was “devastated” by the death of the first-year student.

“Despite the comprehensive pastoral care programmes in place, for us it is inconceivable to imagine how these circumstances could have occurred,” Vice-Chancellor Cheryl de la Rey said in a statement.

New Zealand’s Education Minister Chris Hipkins said he “expects the university to conduct a thorough investigation”.
