Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
My apartment does not have keyholes in the front doors or windows next to the doors or chains on the doors. I thought one of the requirements to get byu approval was to have a way for the resident to see who is at the door without opening it all the way. Am I wrong? And if I am right, what does one do about this?
- nervous about opening the door

A: Dear nervous,
Item 20.11., "SAFETY AND SECURITY"
# 10 states that "all entrance doors shall be equipped with a device that will permit the occupants of the dwelling unit to see a person at the door without fully opening the door." For information about how to dispute this, talk to your landlord or the BYU Housing Office (see the Off-Campus Housing handbook online (under "new policies") at http://www.byu.edu/offcampushousing/.
