Charlesgate, built in 1901, was bought by Boston University to use as a dorm in 1947, and then was also used as a dorm by Emerson College through the late 1990s. It’s now a condo building. Some of the hauntings are attributed to séances held by college kids or a suicide by an architect in one of the closets.
