The fourth floor at this hall is believed to be haunted by playwright Eugene O'Neill, who spent his last years here. The building dates back to 1923 and was originally a Sheraton Hotel that had been renamed the Shelton. In 1954, the university purchased it. Eerie occurrences here include the elevator operating on its own, wind gusts that come out of nowhere, lights that strangely become dim and something unseen that knocks on doors. O'Neill's famous last words as he died in 1953 were, “Born in a hotel room and, goddammit, died in a hotel room.”
