A bomb threat has been made at the campus of Princeton University in New Jersey this morning. Campus officials are evacuating the institution, and requesting that everyone leave campus immediately.

In a message posted to their Facebook page, the University says:

This is NOT a test. There has been a bomb threat to multiple unspecified campus buildings. Please evacuate the campus and all University offices immediately and go home unless otherwise directed by your supervisor.

Police officers from the campus and surrounding community have responded to the site and are currently managing the evacuation effort, and directing traffic off of the campus.

Classes are not currently in session at the University, although there are some summer programs scheduled for today, and a small number of students are on campus.

“Regular classes are over and Commencement was last Tuesday,” read a Tweet posted from the University’s official account a little after 11:00 AM. “Most students left campus days or weeks ago.”

Princeton staff members have told Philadelphia’s ABC television affiliate that they believed the bomb threat was credible.
