KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

Avila University in Kansas City is warning students about someone attempting to secretly record a woman inside a residence hall shower.

The Kansas City Star reports that Darby Gough, an Avila official, detailed how officials planned to add security in the dorms in an email sent Thursday to students. Gough wrote that additional cameras will be installed in Ridgway and Carondelet halls and campus safety officers will make additional rounds.

Steps are also being taken to better secure the women's shower rooms, and surveillance footage is being analyzed.

The announcement came after campus safety officials told students last week in an email that someone had attempted to record a woman inside the Ridgeway Hall showers. And an email in December warned of someone trespassing in the same dorm.

People who live in Ridgeway Hall are worried about safety following this week's incident. 

“There’s not enough privacy," said student Jazlyn Epps. "There’s too many people and so, to get in and out of the restrooms, like, you never know who’s going to be in there.”

“A girl was recorded in the shower and I don’t know how that happened, but it did," said student Greta Layson. "It could potentially happen again. I would hope it wouldn’t, but it’s not really the school's fault, per say. I mean, they can’t control someone else’s actions, but I guess there could have been preventive measures when it comes to the layout.”
