UCLA evacuated students and residents from campus housing after receiving a bomb threat Wednesday evening.
The UCLA Police Department received a threat by phone of a bomb located at a campus recreation center Wednesday night. Police were, as of press time, still investigating the incident, according to a UCLA Police Department on-call dispatcher.
The dispatcher said students and campus housing residents had been evacuated to Drake Stadium.
According to a UCLA Newsroom press release, as of 12:10 a.m. Thursday morning, residents at UCLA’s De Neve and Dykstra residence halls were being allowed back into their rooms. Other buildings will reopen upon being cleared safe.
A previous version of this article mistakenly stated that a UCLA recreation center received a bomb threat Thursday night and that students from certain residence halls were allowed back into their rooms by 12:10 a.m. Friday. In fact, the bomb threat was received Wednesday night and some students were allowed back by 12:10 a.m. Thursday.
