Raccoon University was a prestigious university located in Raccoon City. Its president in 1998 was a man named Frank. Like many other locales throughout Raccoon City, it had close ties to the sinister Umbrella Corporation, and as a result it served as one of multiple secret bio-weapons research facilities, and key members of its faculty were involved. In particular, the president's office had a secret passageway to the locked laboratory on the third floor. Greg Muller and his partner Peter Jenkins secretly created an antidote to the T-Virus here, which they called Daylight. However Umbrella found out and sent Nicholai Ginovaef to kill the scientists and acquire a sample of Daylight. In the process, he planted a bomb that completely destroyed much of the university.
