The University of Connecticut’s Philip E. Austin Building and Gordon W. Tasker Admissions Building were evacuated last week in two unrelated incidents.

The UConn Fire Department went to the Austin building at around 11:20 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8, after a fire alarm was activated and people evacuated the building, UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said.
