An inquest into the death of a University of East Anglia student found dead on campus has been adjourned.
Theo Brennan-Hulme, a creative writing student, was found dead in his room on campus on March 12, 2019.
The 21-year-old's death prompted his mother to call for better communication between the university and student's families, and for parents to be told if their children needed help.
An inquest was part-heard before the coronavirus lockdown, where Norfolk Coroner's Court heard Mr Brennan-Hulme, from Stoke-on-Trent, had Asperger's syndrome and suffered anxiety attacks.
A review was held on Monday, January 4, where area coroner Yvonne Blake said the hearing was not ready to resume following further disclosures.
Following Mr Brennan-Hulme's death, Alison Donnell, his department head at UEA, said: "Theo was a warm and personable young man and highly regarded by his lecturers, tutors and classmates as a talented writer with a huge amount of promise.
"He had quickly established himself as a much-loved member of our first-year cohort and he will be greatly missed by all of us."
