I received E-Mail that said:

Brandeis University in Waltham Massachusetts has a one quarter size replica of a scottish castle that is reportedly being used for student living quarters. I do not know when it was built, or if it has a name.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I have a small piece of information . The US postal service is issuing a new stamp with Brandeis Castle on it. It will be on sale Oct. 17, 1998.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I am a student at Brandeis University and have a little bit of information for you. The castle on our campus is called the Usen Castle. It is a residence hall for upperclassmen, but it also has a coffee shop and a large common room for club meetings and social events.

I believe it was built from the outside in, and is thus very confusing. There are apparently stairwells leading to nowhere, and the rooms come in various odd shapes and sizes.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I am a student at Brandeis who indeed lives in this castle. From what I've heard, it used to be the medical lab for Middlesex university.

There are all sorts of strange blocked off windows and doors to nowhere. Also I've heard that a famous composer used to write music in it, but I'm not sure who. It's such a strange place to live in!!!! Hope this helps!
