No one was hurt, but several Quinnipiac University students were a bit alarmed when they heard a loud boom on the campus on Tuesday afternoon.

It was caused by a boiler implosion underneath the Lender School of Business, which houses the schools of business and communication, just before 3 p.m., according to school officials and Tweets from the school.

Emergency crews responded and the building has been reopened.  

There was no structural damage, school officials said.
