Brandeis University reopens following bomb threat


WALTHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — Public safety officers swept Brandeis University after the school received a bomb threat Wednesday.

According to the school, the campus was closed until around 5 p.m. to all faculty and non-essential personnel. Residential students were initially taken out to playing fields during the safety sweep and were later moved to a secure indoor location.

The school said students are now allowed to return to their residence halls and normal operations will be resumed Thursday. According to the university, move-in dates and orientation will not be pushed back because of Wednesday’s closure.
