Lost master keys prove to be $500,000 gaffe
It goes without saying that master keys for campus residence halls are valuable, but a set of misplaced master keys at the College of William and Mary has led to a hard lesson learned.
The college is now replacing dorm room and exterior locks across its Williamsburg, Virginia campus as part of a project that will cost in excess of $500,000. Per a report from The Flat Hat, the re-coring project is currently underway and affects all but one of the residence halls on William and Mary's campus.
The project follows an announcement made in the fall semester by William and Mary Police that a set of master keys had been lost and was never recovered.
