Unsubstantiated threat being investigated--UPDATED NOON

March 12, 2010, 11:56 a.m.

As a precautionary measure the University is evacuating Jadwin Hall and Icahn Laboratory because of a report of an unsubstantiated bomb threat received at the New Chemistry Building construction site on Princeton's campus.

Evacuees should assemble inside nearby public buildings, such as Frist Campus Center and campus libraries. Township Police and area law enforcement agencies are investigating, along with the Department of Public Safety, and continue to perform an assessment of the immediate site, which also has been evacuated as a precaution. Public Safety is issuing instructions to the affected population as more information becomes available.

Public Safety has determined that there is no imminent threat, but out of an abundance of caution, occupants of nearby buildings are being evacuated purely as a precautionary measure.
