I am sworn to secrecy on which college it is, but there is this one school where a maintenance corridor gives you a good view of the women's shower in one of the dorms. Ok, this one is real. I worked for four years as a night auditor in hotel that had the older design. Instead of the inner hallway like today's more modern motels and hotels, it had an exterior hall system. But that was better for maintenance as each floor had a maintenance corridor between the rooms. That was where the hot water heaters, breaker boxes, cable boosters, etc were all located. So, we caught a maintenance man trying to create a peep room. He cut a hole in the sheetrock behind a vanity mirror. Then he sanded down the back of the mirror to make just a very small peep hole. As long as the light was out in the corridor, you would never see him. Thankfully, we found it out before someone turned us in.
