10 January 2012

The entire Glyndŵr University community has been saddened by news of the death of Gurdeep Hayer.

A first-year business undergraduate at the university, Gurdeep was a popular and talented student whose loss will be felt by all who knew him.

University Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Scott said: “I was fortunate enough to spend some time speaking to Gurdeep shortly before Christmas.

“We discussed our shared roots in the West Midlands and it was clear how much he enjoyed university life and how well-liked he was by his peers.

“The thoughts of everyone at Glyndŵr University are with Gurdeep’s family at this tragic time.”

Student President Adam Fuller said: “Gurdeep was an extremely popular figure at the university, and particularly in the Wrexham Village accommodation where he lived.

“On behalf of all Glyndŵr University students I wish to send my condolences to Gurdeep’s family.”
