Duke University Beefs Up Security Inside Dorms

Posted August 5, 2003 6:02 a.m. EDT

— Duke University is beefing up security inside the dorms after a student was attacked last year.

Students will now need a card to get inside the bathrooms at two dorms.

In October 2002, a man hiding out in a locked bathroom tried to sexually assault a female student. She was able to get away.

School officials say the system is easy to re-program if a student loses a card.
