UH Students: We Had No Idea Our Dorm's Security Cameras Were Broken

Alia Wong/Civil Beat

Frear Hall is a tree-lined, 12-story dorm nestled between the the University of Hawaii at Manoa's law school and the Center for Hawaiian Studies.

Renovated in 2008 after the original building was demolished, Frear Hall boasts amenities that many of the university’s other dorms don’t have: controlled air conditioning, private bathrooms, a game room with a pool table and flat-screen TVs.

It’s also the only UH dorm with security cameras.

But until Wednesday, the camera system wasn’t working. And students living in the building didn’t even know.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
