LIU Post closed due to non-specific threat

Posted: Updated:

The LIU Post campuses are closed today because of a non-specific threat.

The university says in a statement that the FBI advised it Wednesday of the threat, which they believe is non-credible.

However, out of an abundance of caution due to the tragedies in Texas and Ohio, the campus has chosen to close for the day.

All student and employee residents will still maintain access to campus housing.
