Two buildings have haunting rumors surrounding them at the University of Windsor. One is Beckett House, an old house that serves as a dorm. Campus legend says long ago a woman was murdered here by a man, and as a result, the spirit here is not very nice to male visitors. And at another dorm, Laurier Hall, students have reported strange thumping and other sounds, as well as moving objects, curtains that open and close themselves, and toilets that flush with no one around them.
