ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Officials at the University of St. Thomas have given the all-clear on campus after a bomb threat was reported Tuesday morning.

The St. Paul school tweeted that it received the threat around 7:45 a.m., and that no particular location for the threat was given.

Around 8:30 a.m., the Facilities Design Center, John Roach Center, Anderson Student Center and the O’Shaughnessy Science Center were evacuated. At the time, all classes in those buildings were expected to be cancelled until 1 p.m.

At 9:30 a.m., Anderson Student Center was given the all clear and the school said classes would resume at that time. The other buildings were given the all clear about eight minutes later. The school says classes in those buildings will resume at 1:30 p.m., as normally scheduled.

Counselors will be available to those who want support.

The threat comes nearly one month after a similar threat forced the school to be evacuated on Aug. 20. The building was searched and the all clear was given less than an hour later.
