Peep and pay: maintenance workers peeped, but UC may pay. (Update).
Pauline Hale, UC spokesperson, claims that the university discovered the peepholes and notified students about them in the spring. But Zakhem tells a different story. He says his clients were nervous and suspicious last September when workmen were loitering in Farrand Hall. One woman notified authorities when she caught a man's face peering at her from a shower drain.
"[UC officials] determined they didn't have the resources to meet the requirement for additional security," he says. Hale, however, denies the school hesitated in addressing the situation. "The peepholes were found by our own staff," she insists. The university plans to tighten security by installing key card systems on the bathroom doors and utility closets, a move that will limit access while keeping a digital log of comings and goings.
