However, for such old buildings and universities, haunted tales are unsurprising.

According to MyLondon website, the Cruciform building is now home to the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research. Earlier, this building used to be a hospital, which made the paranormal activities more horrifying.

The bizarre thing is that students now sleep in the same building as the alleged ghost sightings.
