Winston Hall
2121 State Avenue

Originally erected in 1939, this venerable four-story building serves as the university's main administrative center, its ivy-covered stone walls barely containing the offices of all the assorted deans and the President of the University, as well as the Office of the Registrar, the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, the Office of Campus Maintenance, the Office of Campus Security and other essential administrative departments. The building is stately and impressively large, and was certainly more than adequate for the school's needs in the '40s, '50s and '60s, but it has grown increasingly crowded in more recent years. Though the administration has been promising a major expansion for over a decade, the university has yet to get around even to requisitioning the necessary funds.

The problem is compounded by the fact that the fourth floor of Winston Hall has fallen into complete disuse since President Josephine Lance committed suicide in her fourth-story office in 1954. Following that dark chapter in the university's history, the fourth story and all those who dared to enter it were plagued by strange and terrifying occurences, and though the university would never admit that it believes that the level in question is now haunted, it has nevertheless been notably reluctant to move any administrative offices to the top floor of Winston Hall. The level that once housed the office suite of the President and several others now lies abandoned, all the furnishings left to rot, the whole area visited only by those brave few students who manage to circumvent campus security in search of a quick brush with the supernatural.
