Real Ghost Stories

Boys' Dormitory


This one happened to me when I was in college. My parents sent me to stay in a boys' dormitory in Quezon City. It was a newly renovated building that once belongs to the Carmelite Sisters.

The Hall, we are used to call it has 5 floors. The building was made of full concrete which means the ceilings and walls are concrete and the floors in marbles. From the 2nd floor to the 5th floor are the dormitories. On the ground floor there is our refectory/canteen, a small fancy chapel and a reception. Each room has 4sets of beds and a small closet/cabinet. At the foot of the beds there's our study table with a cabinet on top of it. Beside the table there's a wash basin and the bathroom.

We are the pioneers in that dormitory so we heard a lot of freaky stories from people who have been finishing the building.

One day on my first year, I had just arrived from school and headed right away to my room. My room was in the third floor then. I was in a hurry because I just bought a couple of "Archie and Jug head" comic books. As I lay in bed and reading one of the comic books I heard a noise coming from the ceiling. The noise sounded like someone was tossing coins on the ceiling.

I went to the room upstairs the one on top of my room to check who was tossing the coins. Apparently the room was closed. I went back to my room and continued reading but there it was again. It was so annoying that I went back to the same room and even checked the other rooms but there was nobody. Some windows were open and I saw that they were empty. It seemed that I was the only one who went home early because I went downstairs and checked in the log book. The occupants of those rooms were not yet logged-in.

Anyway, a year passed and I was now occupying a different room. But one day I passed by a group of students who were hanging out sharing some ghost or freaky stories. One boy shared his freaky story that he often hears coins being tossed on the ceiling but nobody was in the rooms on top of his. I asked the boy where he is staying and it was in the same room where I stayed before.

There were some more creepy experience in that dormitory which I will share later.

maybe it is an entity guarding something valuable. And it wants to break free from guarding it so that entity wants someone to find that valuable thing. (coins can be equated to riches right?)... Sounds like a good indiana jones adventure. 😁

Dear rumpoint,

It seems you have a seemingly benevolent but annoying spirit in your dormitory. I agree with Tonith on the point were the ghost wanted to somehow get your attention without frightening you. I cannot really offer any advice since nothing bad is happening, and God willing nothing bad will ever occur.

Thank you for sharing your story and I am looking forward to reading more of your stories. God bless, deus vobiscum and God bless.

I like reading stories about coins. I read one last noght in a book and found it very interesting. In the book the coins represent the family members the adults had big coins and the children had small coins like pennies. I guess in this story it doesn't fit 😆.But this story was very intersting. Thank you for sharring. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Hi Tonith. I think you are right. Something was trying to get my attention at that time. And in addition to that experience, I noticed that the sound was coming from the inside of the concrete ceiling and not from its surface or from the other room on top of mine.

I don't know what it is about ghosts and coin tossing but a lot of it goes on. The odd part here is that it sounds like it's hitting the ceiling. Someone dropping a coin from the room above would hardly make a noise that distinct. Sounds like it's coming from within the room. You were not the only one to hear it either. I have heard of spirits tossing coins or stones but they find the coins or stones. You just got the sound but no physical evidence of the sound. Something was trying to get your attention.
