The bomb threat was called in over the phone. Royal Brougham Pavillion, the university's gym, was evacuated.

SPU MODE Fashion Group, an on-campus club, was hosting a fashion show in the gym at the time.

The club says it is unsure if and when it will reschedule the annual event.

Due to a threat to the campus, the building that was housing the fashion show was evacuated. We will update everyone if/when we reschedule - decision will be made Monday.

Below is a text message that the university sent out to all students Saturday night:
