While the University of New Brunswick is known to most as a hotspot for education, it’s also a hotspot for paranormal activity. Many places around UNB, such as the Beaverbrook Room (or RedRum) on the second floor of the Harriet Irving Library, are known to be the homes of ghosts and spectres. Other places on campus, such as Memorial Hall, are so haunted that they have actually been visited by professional paranormal investigators. In each of these unique locales, witnesses to these extraordinary events have reported sightings of spectral figures, hearing footsteps, feeling cold drafts, and sometimes even the touch of a ghostly hand on their shoulder. This photo series was inspired by tales from each of these wonderful haunted places around UNB and pays homage to some of campus’ best ghost stories.
