The University of Kent was evacuated this morning after a suspicious device was discovered.
Police arrived on campus at around 10.45am and students were forced to leave a number of buildings, but it has since been confirmed as a false alarm.
One student said she was in the library cafe when security walked in and told everyone to leave and move away from the building.
A police spokesman said: "We received a call at 10.47am to what was described as a suspect device at the university.
"No hoax calls were made.
"The university took the decision to evacuate a library as a precaution.
"Police attended and the device was found to be harmless. An investigation is underway to determine how it got there."
The University of Kent have now tweeted to confirm that two buildings were evacuated after a "security alert".
Students have also taken to social media to report the incident.
The incident comes less than three months after the campus was evacuated because of a bomb scare.
