Second-year biology major Brandon Huang stopped breathing around 11:56 p.m. Saturday outside Poly Canyon Village. University police performed CPR on Huang, 20, but they did not revive him. Doctors later pronounced Huang dead at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.
The cause of death remains under investigation, but police do not suspect foul play.
Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong announced Huang’s death by email Sunday afternoon. Armstrong said Huang died while returning to his residence hall from off campus.
Vice president for student affairs Keith Humphrey said alcohol could possibly have been a factor, but he was not sure.
Huang’s Facebook profile showed that he was from Orinda, located in the East Bay Area.
