    Staff of the The Gordon W. Tasker Admissions Building received a call at 10:55 a.m. with a vague threat, according to a spokesperson for the university and an alert on the school's Web site.

    Students and faculty near the building were asked to evacuate.

    The all clear was issued at 11:47 a.m.

    The Tasker Building  is located at 2131 Hillside Road and includes admissions and events offices, as well as the offices of several staff members from the Neag School of Education.

    Few students are on campus on Monday because they are scheduled to move in this weekend and begin classes next week.

    The Facebook page for UConn’s Transportation Services said  UConn buses and AVS vans were being brought back to transportation or were sheltering in place. Service has since resumed.
