A bomb threat was reported Monday at West Virginia University. 

The threat was made just before 12:30 p.m. on the Evansdale Campus in Morgantown.

According to WVU officials, a university employee in the Mineral Resources Building received a phone call prompting an evacuation order to be posted on the university’s X page —  formerly Twitter.

The Engineering Sciences buildings were immediately closed and public transit services at the Engineering Station temporarily halted.

After performing a thorough search of the Mineral Resources Building, university police officers found no evidence of a threat and campus operations returned to normal around 2 p.m.

An investigation into the origin of the call is underway.
