My son just entered his freshman year in college in Boston and moved into a nearby dormitory where I discovered that none of the wall outlets in his room have any ground connection at the wall plates, a situation which is both dangerous and, I suspect, illegal.

I have been given to understand that the wiring may be in violation of the National Electrical Code's Article 250, Grounding and Bonding, but I need some good advice here!

Please, can anyone help???
