I just finished reading Bentley Little's University, and I loved it.  I realized that I have a place in my heart for horror stories (short stories, or novels) taking place on college campuses (perhaps it's because I spent 5 days a week on a campus).  One of my favorite short stories is King's Strawberry Spring.  Can anyone recommend other novels or short stories that involve universities? 

Thanks!

Tom Piccirilli's The Night Class is pretty weird, but takes place in a college/university.

I haven't read it yet, but The Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff also takes place at a university.

I'll try to think of some more.

Thanks!  I ordered The Night Class and came across another book of Sokoloff's that looks interesting.

Sarah Pinborough's Tower Hill takes place at a university and in the surrounding town.

The Body of Evidence series by Christopher Golden is set up at a college/university, totalled 10 books I believe (should be read in order).  They are YA stories, but I thought they were more for  right about 16 year-olds.  Pretty good series, wish he kept going.

Rage by Steve gerlach takes place with the main character a college student. refers to some classes and the school library.  It's some horror in the vein of JF Gonzalez's more extreme works, or Ed Lee.
