Tragic loss of UWL student Mohammad Alhajali in Grenfell Tower fire

We are shocked and saddened to learn of the death of our student, Mohammad Alhajali, in such tragic circumstances. Mohammad was in the first year of a 4 year BEng Civil and Environmental Engineering with Foundation degree course. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.

The University of West London (UWL) is aware of a number of students living in or near to Grenfell Tower.  We have been reaching out to all of these students to offer assistance and to confirm their safety and security. We have also been in close contact with the Metropolitan Police's Casualty Bureau to help them in their investigations. A number of our students have already been confirmed as safe, and we continue to offer them our assistance.

We will be working with all staff and students affected to support them at this difficult time.
