University College London campus was evacuated because of a hoax call, Met Police says
Students were locked out of campus and police were present
The Met Police have confirmed that a hoax call was made to UCL this morning, leading to an evacuation of campus.
Students were seen gathered outside the Gordon Street and Gower Street entrances, having been locked out of the buildings. Police were also present, but have since said that the incident was a hoax.
On advice from the Police, we temporarily closed UCL's main campus gates & reduced access to a small number of buildings at around 10:30am. On further advice, all areas were reopened a short time later. The measures were precautionary & we thank those affected for their patience.
