(CNN) — Princeton University on Tuesday morning ordered the evacuation of its campus after “a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings,” the school said on its website.
Princeton police dispatcher Kenneth Bruvik told CNN that the campus was being evacuated because of an “emergency” but declined to give details.
“Please evacuate the campus and all university offices immediately and go home unless otherwise directed by your supervisor,” the school’s website message said. “Do not return to campus for any reason until advised otherwise.”
Princeton University Spokesperson Martin Mbugua told CNN, “The bomb threat was a phone call made directly to the university.”
He said origin of the call had not been determined, and that the ongoing sweep of buildings on campus would be going on for several hours.
