Monster on the Campus (Monster in the Night and Stranger on the Campus) is a 1958 American science fiction/horror film, released by Universal Pictures. The film was the last of Universal's science fiction monster films released before Island of Terror (1966).

Monster on the Campus was directed by Jack Arnold and from a script by David Duncan.


Professor Donald Blake (Arthur Franz) acquires a newly-discovered coelacanth. He begins to examine the find and is exposed to its irradiated blood. This turns him into a murderous Neanderthal monster that terrorizes the campus. Troy Donahue appears as a college student, a speaking part.
