Trinity campus closed due to 'threats received' from around the country

Posted June 21

— A college campus in Hartford is on alert for what it's calling "threats received."

Trinity College posted to its Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon that "due to threats received and out of an abundance of caution, all campus buildings are card ID access only."

It later tweeted that it was closed until further notice.

Hartford police said they are looking into non-credible, non-specific threats from around the country related to alleged comments potentially made by a Trinity staff member.

They said their crime center analysts are investigating and that there is no immediate danger to students or staff. There will be an ongoing enhanced security presence on campus.

School officials said they would post updates on their website here.
