The Los Angeles County coroners office has identified a man who was found dead after an apparent fall from a building on campus Tuesday as 47 year-old Reynaldo Quitos, the L.A. Times reports.

Quitos was an assistant at the university library, the Times said. 

UCLA spokesman Tod Tamberg said Quitos was found late Tuesday afternoon at the base of Boelter Hall at the university's School of Engineering. He appears to have jumped or fallen off the building.

University police say no foul play is suspected.

The Los Angeles County coroner is continuing its investigation into the death.
