The first alert came to students around 9:40 a.m., which said there had been a threat to the admissions building and asked students to evacuate and avoid the area.

Students were then notified at 10:05 a.m. the evacuation area was extended to the San Jacinto and Tower residence halls.

According to university officials, the threat came to a "Houston-area admissions counselor" who works from home.
