HMS Architecture Building - USF Tampa

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  HMS Architecture Building - USF Tampa

The fourth floor of this building – particularly room 469 – is considered to be haunted by a malevolent-feeling spirit by the late-night staff. Voices are heard, and on at least one occasion a wind-chime started jangling all by itself. One worker saw a spectral German Shepherd dog sitting in a hallway on the 4th floor, and when he shooed it away, it walked casually through a closed door.
