A noose was spotted hanging outside a residence hall in Stanford on Sunday — potentially the third time in which the hateful symbol was spotted on the prestigious Bay Area university’s campus.

University heads confirmed that the noose was spotted Sunday evening outside Branner Hall, an undergraduate dormitory for juniors and seniors on campus.

“We would like to express our gratitude to those who reported the noose and contacted DPS, and are working this evening to support directly impacted students, faculty and staff,” Stanford vice provosts Susie Brubaker-Cole and Patrick Dunkley wrote in a statement, the student-run Stanford Daily reported. “We are sharing this message with the full university community so that everyone is informed and we can move forward as one committed to ending anti-Black racism.”
