We received the following account in October 2012

"Not sure if you're still adding stories onto your page for Humber (or the former Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital), but I've got one personal account of something that happened to me this past Monday.


I've just started attending school at Humber. I know a bit about the history of the campus and about the supposed hauntings that have occurred over the years, but had never met anyone who had actually experienced anything personally. Anyway. This past Monday night, I went to campus to print off some assignments for my class the next day. I went into what I had thought was the H building (still not too familiar with each building, also it was quite dark and I went through a backdoor stairwell entrance - not often used, but a decent enough shortcut I thought). Upon entering the stairwell, I was instantly struck by a strong, sweet, floral scent that I had never smelled before. I figured it was a quirk of the H building - HOWEVER, I had heard about hauntings in H and thought "hmm, maybe this is something?" After making my way through the stairwell, I realized I was not in H, but the F building. Any hopes I had that what I experienced was in any way paranormal were dashed. As far as I knew, there was nothing at all "wrong" with F, so what I experienced must have been nothing. I left the building and went to H.


Yesterday, I found myself in conversation with several of the security guards on campus (I have a small job there and we often chit-chat about little things). The topic of the campus hauntings came up and they instantly started sharing story after story of things that have happened to them and other guards. One piped up and said "have you heard of the ghost of the woman who haunts the F building?" He proceeded to tell me that the ghost manifests itself through the scent of flowers - the same smell as the one I had experienced just the other night. I told them what had happened to me and they confirmed that that would have been her. I later found out that the basement of the F building was where the hospital morgue once was, though I'm still not sure who the woman was or what her connection to this building might have been. They do say that she is friendly and means no harm - she might actually be looking out for people who enter the building late at night.


They told me many, many more stories of experiences they and the cleaning staff have had over the years. Many of them patrol the grounds in pairs at night, refusing to walk alone because of things that have happened.


Thank you for letting me share this story."
