SINGAPORE - A Nanyang Technological University (NTU) student who was caught taking videos of his fellow hostel mates in the shower has been banned from staying in campus dormitories.

"The student is no longer a resident at the hall and has been barred from hall accommodation for the rest of his period of study," a spokesman from NTU said.

The student may also face disciplinary action depending on the outcome of the police investigation, NTU added.

The fourth-year student from Hall of Residence 16 was nabbed in the act on Oct 13.

A resident who was showering spotted a smartphone above the cubicle while he was showering at about 1am.

A few hall residents nabbed the peeping tom, who was handed over to the police. There were allegedly 66 videos of male students showering saved in the suspect's phone.

This was the second case of voyeurism reported at Hall 16 this year.

The spokesman said that the university expects all students in the halls to "have respect for their fellow students".

"Security is the responsibility of all members of the university community, and students have been advised to be vigilant and to look out for each other's safety," he added.
