The University of Winnipeg and Winnipeg Technical College are closed after a "security threat" was received naming them and Red River College.
Around 1 p.m., Winnipeg Technical College received a phone call of a recording that included threats to the U of W and Red River College, according to a security bulletin on Red River College's website.
A search by police and security staff did not turn up anything suspicious at any of the three schools. All three were assessed as being "safe and cleared," Red River College said.
Operations are continuing at Red River College as normal, but the U of W is conducting a more thorough search overnight.
The university's campus closed at 4:30 p.m. and is expected to reopen tomorrow at 8 a.m. Several exams scheduled for tonight have been postponed until tomorrow. Affected students and faculty will be notified of the changes.
A message on Winnipeg Technical College's website indicates evening classes at the Erin Street campus have been cancelled tonight.
