Princeton’s campus was closed for eight hours June 11 after the University received a call that said multiple bombs were placed throughout the campus at unspecified locations. Several law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, conducted a campus search with bomb-sniffing dogs. No bombs were found. The University used automated phone calls, emails, and campus loudspeakers to notify about 6,900 staff, faculty, and students to evacuate the campus at 10:26 a.m. Most students had left for the summer, but research projects and summer camps were underway. Normal operations resumed at 6:25 p.m.
