UC Berkeley officials alerted the campus community Tuesday afternoon to a bomb threat that they believe is a hoax.
Earlier today, a campus operator received a very brief telephone call, saying that `there is a bomb on campus`. We believe this to be a hoax, as similar threats have recently been made at other universities.
Nonetheless, campus police have been searching all buildings on campus. In addition, we have notified building coordinators to be alert for suspicious objects. If you see anything suspicious, please report it to the campus police at 642-6760 and leave the building.
If you wish to leave campus, please feel free to do so.
