The University of the Fraser Valley will install 10 new condom dispensers on its Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses in January.

In October, UFV issued an advisory to students that someone could have tampered with condoms available in several public locations at the school. Condoms have still been available, but only in two supervised areas.

“The product will still be free,” said UFV spokesperson Dave Pinton. “They will be distributed between the student union building in Abbotsford, the Baker House residence, and the unisex washroom in building A on the Chilliwack campus.”

Pinton said he hasn’t heard of anyone becoming pregnant or infected with a sexually transmitted disease, and there has been no further information on the investigation.

“This is something we took very seriously – it’s a situation that had possible serious health and wellness ramifications,” he said.

It is still unknown whether the dispensers will be installed when students return for the winter semester on Jan. 4.
