this is the oldest university in asia. it'll celebrate 400 years of existence next year.
during the world war 2, the japanese military made the campus into a internment camp where crimes against Americans Soldiers and civilians happened. the population totaled 3,259 of which 2,200 were American, 74 British, 920 Dutch, 28 Polish, 36 Mexicans and 1 Nicaraguan. There were about 335 casualties among the internees, 35 died and 300 were wounded. According to accounts, some of them died of diseases caused by famine. Some even committed suicide, while others were executed by the Japanese invaders. Some were buried in a vacant lot outside the Forbes gate, and others were buried inside the campus.

there has also been alot of suicides and murders that have happened in and out of the university. in 1987, a student leaped from the 3rd floor of the st. raymund building and died on impact, her bones were shattered and blood was all over the ground. in 2001, a student was found dead on the bleachers of the quadrangle after he suffered multiply beating as a result of hazing by his ROTC officers.

there have been numerous reports of paranormal activity in the university. the main building has been the hub . spanish friars have been seen walking the halls. cries and footsteps have been heard. occupants of the girls bathroom have felt like there's something hitting their forehead when they use a certain cubicle.

i have alot of personal experience in the university too(i attended the university for a year). in the st. raymund building, i always feel very sad whenever i am in the girls bathroom to the point that i found myself crying, and this was before i knew about the story of the girl. the scariest thing that happened to me was in the main building. i was standing on top of the staircase when i saw a white mist infront of me and then a gust of cold air. it threw my balance off and i fell all the way down the last step.

as far as i know, there hasn't been any paranormal group that was allowed to investigate the university (it is still under the vatican). I think it is one of the most haunted places in the Philippines.
