Accident at Lone Mountain East

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

In an accident late in the evening of Sunday Oct. 3, one of our residents living in the Lone Mountain East (LME) residence hall sustained serious physical injuries after falling from a third floor window. 

USF Public Safety, Community Living staff, and medical professionals arrived on site to assist. We have been in contact with our student’s family and want to share that our student is currently in stable condition and continues to receive medical care. Please know that our student has the full support of the university. 

A message about the accident was shared with the LME community the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 5.
