Classes were expected to resume today after Niagara University canceled classes Thursday for a reported ransomware attack.

The college issued a statement Thursday afternoon after notifying students and staff of the situation:

"On Wednesday evening the university discovered that some of its email servers were encrypted by ransomware. University staff are currently working with a third party vendor to understand the nature and scope of the ransomware attack and to ensure that the servers become fully operational as soon as possible.

Law enforcement has been notified and we are cooperating with the investigation.

At this point we have no indication that any personal information has been compromised.

Contrary to reports, Niagara University is not on lock-down."

The college’s website was also inaccessible on Thursday.
