STORRS, Conn. — A University of Connecticut student is being monitored for injuries they sustained after a fall from a third-floor window on campus.

A University spokeswoman said emergency personnel responded to a dorm in the Northwest residential area about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

They found one student on the ground below the window, and a second who also needed medical attention in a dorm room.

Both were initially taken to Windham Hospital, but the person who fell from the window was transferred to Hartford Hospital.

The UConn spokeswoman said student who fell from the window is in stable condition and the other student was released this morning after being treated overnight at Windham Hospital.

No additional information about the students was made public.

The Northwest residential area is comprised of six dorms that combined house more than 1,000 first-year students.
