Seton Hall University has reopened its main campus in South Orange following a bomb threat posted earlier in the day on social media. Normal operations will resume at 8 a.m. on Friday, May 31.
The Essex County Bomb Squad and other local law enforcement agencies conducted a thorough search of each of the buildings on campus and found no evidence of explosive devices. Only residence students and essential University personnel are being allowed back on campus at this time. All classes and campus operations will resume as normal beginning Friday.
The University was notified by the South Orange Police Department of the online threat at approximately 3:36 p.m. today and then closed the campus and began evacuating all individuals from the buildings as a precaution during the search. The University takes threats of this nature seriously and is working closely with police officials to investigate the matter.
