DARTMOUTH, Mass. - The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has announced that their lockdown of the Dartmouth campus ends today, and students will be allowed to return to their dorms.

Officials say traffic will be allowed back onto campus, starting at 9 a.m., while staff prep the campus for the return of students.

Residence halls will re-open at noon.

The Dartmouth campus of University of Massachusetts was locked down for two days after it was discovered by officials that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a student there.

As of Sunday, the campus is secure, and everyone is safe.
