Old School Building
One of the staples of school settings in anime and manga is the Old School Building (Kyuukousha), an old wooden building (or wing) on the grounds that is often used as storage, for clubrooms, or just left abandoned, seemingly left behind when the rest of the school was at some point renovated or rebuilt. If derelict it is most likely haunted (or believed to be), so will be the subject of at least one of The Seven Mysteries and may be used for Kimodameshi.
