Niagara University - Niagara Univ NY Real Haunted Place
When Niagara University was founded in 1856 as the College and Seminary of Our Lady of Angels, it had only six students and two faculty members. Over the years it has expanded greatly in size and scope to become a full-fledged university; it has also become home to a locally famous ghost. In 1864 a fire in Clet Hall stranded a student named Thomas Hopkins on an upper-level floor. Hopkins died in the fire, but his spirit remains and has been seen roaming the halls, opening doors, and turning on lights and water faucets.

Current student- it’s true.
I’m a current student and have already experienced this stuff. Weird winds from nowhere, the door absolutely slamming on its own despite slowly and softly closing beforehand. It’s scary.Posted 8/29/22
