A tweet sent out by SF State police stated the closure was activated for only the main campus around 2:20 p.m. Thursday.

Police said several buildings were being evacuated which included the student union, library, and a residential building.

Final exams are happening this week, and the school of nursing was holding a graduation ceremony in one of the buildings.
