(PRINCETON, N.J.) — Princeton University has been evacuated following a bomb threat to the Ivy League campus on Tuesday.

In a statement, the Princeton, N.J., university said it received a bomb threat to “multiple, unspecified buildings on campus.”

“Students, faculty and staff were advised to go home, assemble at evacuation sites or go into the town of Princeton, where the Nassau Inn, Princeton Public Library and Princeton Arts Council buildings were open to them,” the statement said.

According to a law enforcement official, a suspicious package was found on campus.

While regular classes at Princeton are over, some students and faculty could be on campus for summer programs.

“Except for essential workers from Public Safety and the Department of Facilities, employees are not expected to return to campus for work today,” the school said.

Princeton said it is investigating the threat with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
