Dormitories Undergo Lock Changes

Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea -- The holidays are coming early this year; the 8th Civil Engineering Squadron Unaccompanied Housing Office is changing the locks on most of the dorms this winter. Currently some dorms are already undergoing the change, but some others will become a part of a 3 phase project.
Phase 1 is projected to be completed by Dec. 18 and includes dormitory buildings 617, 535 and 339.
Phase 2 is projected to start Dec. 22 and includes dormitory buildings 504 and 603.
Phase 3 is projected to start Jan. 28 and includes dormitory buildings 340, 342, 344, 346, 1407 and 1408.
The goal of this project is to cut down the amount of individuals locking themselves out of their rooms. Instead of losing a key or accidentally demagnetizing a card, all that dormitory personnel will have to remember is a 5-digit pin to get into their room.
The Unaccompanied Housing Office wants to thank all personnel for being patient while the contractors change out over 2,100 locks.
