First-year students are scheduled to arrive Sunday to begin orientation for the 2017-18 school year.
The university made the announcement on Twitter account and website, saying the Waltham, Massachusetts, campus will be closed for the day to all faculty and nonessential personnel. Brandeis posted an update in the afternoon, saying students on campus were safe and a secured location.
It said campus buildings were being checked to assure that all community members have left. Brandeis promised to continue to post updates online regarding the campus' status.

The website says the institution is "animated by a set of values that are rooted in Jewish history and experience," and says it is "one of the few universities in America with inclusivity as a founding principle."
