The University of Northern Colorado is said to be haunted by ghosts both real and imaginary. “Edith” was created when photographer Barry Gutierrez made a series of ghostly photographs starring dance student Jamie Mills, but real disembodied spirits are said to linger here as well, from a ghost who stacks chairs in Gray Hall to George, who slams doors at Belford Hall. There are too many ghostly legends here to tell about them all, but here is just a sampling: At Turner Hall, a ghost slams multiple doors all at once, and Stoney Ghosty leaves a phantom marijuana smell. He is said to be a student who died from drug abuse. A ghostly janitor haunts the basement of Harrison, and the real Edith is said to roll marbles in the attic and tinker with TVs in two dorms: Wiebking and Wilson. Other places rumored to be haunted include Gunter Hall, Kepner Hall, Tobey-Kendel dining hall, Crabbe Hall, Michener Library, the outdoor Garden Theater and the tunnels underneath the campus.

  1. A UNC Student and Employee  |  

    I work at the Michener Library on UNC’s campus. I was in the basement working where we keep some books and journals in storage. I was adjusting a book on a shelf when several feet down from me another book shot out of its spot. A few months later, the same thing happened in another area of the basement. I was alone both times and only staff and student workers are allowed down there. Other coworkers won’t go down into the basement alone and every time I go down there (even before I saw the books shoot out) I feel unnerved and scared for no reason, even if I’m with another coworker.

    My sister has a professor in the art department who said that he has had lights turn out repeatedly in Crabbe Hall until he said, “Stop it, ghost.”
