KNOXVILLE (WBIR) - The University of Tennessee is bringing its dorms into the 21st century through technology.

Fred D. Brown Jr. Residence Hall is UT's first new residence hall in 45 years. It is part of a project to renovate every dorm on campus and could be used as a model for technology in future dorms.

A resident needs his/her student identity card to gain access to his/her dorm room. Staff also has access to the rooms but the keypad tracks who enters.

"It's just easy because you don't have to worry about losing a key because you always have your little card on you," said Sarah Henson, a freshman living at Fred D. Brown Jr. Hall.
