Campus Safety Alert for 9/28/2021


The morning of Tuesday, September 28, the University Police in partnership with other law enforcement agencies detained a person of interest who we believe is responsible for the recent threat to the SF State campus. At this time the investigation is continuing, but we do not believe there are any ongoing threats to the SF State campus or our community.

Classes and work which have moved to remote modalities will continue remotely for the rest of the day. University buildings, including the library, remain closed today.
Residential students are clear to leave the residential area. SF State will reopen for normal operations on Wednesday, September 29.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

As a reminder: please be sure you are signed up for SF State’s Emergency Notification System.


Overnight, San Francisco State University Police became aware of a non-specific threat of armed violence on campus which was posted to social media and subsequently deleted. The post was viewed and shared among students and other members of the campus community.
University administrators, in an abundance of caution, made the decision to move in-person classes and work to remote modalities for the day while UPD investigates the credibility of the threat.

University buildings, including the library, will remain closed. Residential students are asked to remain in campus residences until notified otherwise. The public safety presence on campus has been increased to protect members of the SF State community who remain on campus, including residential students and staff members who support them.
