Bomb Threat Closes Aurora University Building

Building's classes canceled, no explosive device found



    A west suburban college building was closed Thursday morning after a bomb threat was called into the school, police said.

    Aurora University's Institute for Collaboration building, on the 400 block of South Calumet, was evacuated around 9:15 a.m. and closed, according to the college.

    Aurora Police spokesman Dan Ferrelli said police and a specialized K-9 unit searched the building, and no explosive devices were found.

    The building was back open by 12:30 p.m., but classes in the building were canceled. The rest of the university was unaffected.

    No injuries were reported.
