Students from Niagara University and the University at Buffalo studying abroad in London are being contacted by their respective universities following the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert Monday night.

London is about 200 miles from Manchester where the attack happened.

Thirty-six students from Niagara University are all safe and accounted for.

UB has confirmed more than half of the 66 students studying in London are safe and is working to confirm the others. The university says it does not know of any students who attended the concert and is not aware that any were in Manchester during the attack. UB is encouraging students to get in touch with their families to let them know they are okay.

The Niagara University community sends thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families "as they cope with this senseless violence," the university expressed in a release.
