A former staff member claimed that some of her colleagues had experienced paranormal phenomena at the building.

Paisley - Area around the Piazzia
One of the buildings in this area was once a theatre. During a performance, smoke was spotted which made the audience, mostly children, try to escape what they believed to be a fire.

Paisley - Art College
Late twentieth century
Two teachers at the college heard heavy footsteps walking in a locked room. When investigated, they found nothing, but the footsteps repeated their movements twice more over the following half hour. Whispering in empty rooms was also common, and one teacher found heavy clays moved around his work area - it took three people to lift the clay back to its original position.
