Princeton University has reopened eight hours after the campus was evacuated early Tuesday due to a bomb threat, according to officials.

Bomb-sniffing dogs found no explosive device in any of the buildings.  The investigation continues as police work with the university’s Department of Public Safety to determine the source of the threat.

The threat informed the university that there had been multiple bombs placed throughout the campus at random locations.  Students and staff were advised to evacuate the campus and all university offices immediately and to go home unless otherwise directed by their supervisor.

Princeton University’s ‘TigerTransit’ will resume it’s normal schedule Wednesday morning.
