PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Bomb threats were made against several more buildings on the University of Pittsburgh campus Monday.

Amos Hall, Bruce Hall, Brackenridge Hall and Panther Hall were all evacuated around 4 a.m. after the latest round of bomb threats on the campus.

Over 1,000 students were evacuated from the buildings.

On Sunday, the school announced new safety measures were being put into place in an attempt to curb these threats:

  • Pitt will begin limiting building access on Monday and heightening security measures.
  • Students will need a Pitt ID to get into buildings.
  • Book bags, backpacks and packages will not be allowed.
  • Pitt students may no longer sign non-Pitt students into their dormitories.
