Dodds Hall and Kaplan Hall have been evacuated just before noon on Monday due to a natural gas smell, according to an emergency alert sent by Ronald Quagliani, associate vice president for public safety.

Fire department officials confirmed that there was an odor in a room on the first floor of Kaplan Hall, and that the gas company was contacted.

Several students on the fourth floor of Dodds Hall reported that they did not smell anything, but were evacuated as a precaution.

The area around Dodds Hall has been cleared, with students waiting in nearby buildings. It was not clear how long the evacuation would be in place.

The incident comes a week after Buckman Hall was evacuated due to a failure in the ventilation systems.
