Renovate Activities Room (1213P14)

Status: Lapsed | Zone: Creative Industries

Passed: 04/02/2014 | Lapsed: 04/02/2014

This policy was discussed at the following meetings:

  • Used by many clubs, but not as many as Multipurpose Studio due to it's poor maintenance by SUSU (dirty, broken floor)
  • SUKDS, Table Tennis, Fencing, Shorinjo Kempo, Karate, belly dance,  salsa etc. all use it at least twice a week
  • Thus it needs to be suitable for martial arts ,dance clubs and societies
  • Martial arts studio is only available to those who have Sportrec (a small minority)
  • The curtains currently in the room only cover less than half of the windows
  • The activities room is sometimes used as a storage room, for example: Freshers' welcome packs
  • This would increase popularity of martial arts at soton
  • This would improve soton's standing as a centre for martial arts
  • This would ease pressure off room bookings for multipurpose room and would allow a new training space for both martial arts clubs and dance societies
  • This would provide a SAFER and CLEANER room for training purposes (lower risk assessment)
  • Renovate the floor (soft wood panelling suitable for dance and  martial arts)
  • Install mirrors like the multipurpose studio
  • Allow martial arts , dance clubs and societies to use both the multipurpose studio and the renovated activities room
  • Install new curtains to cover all windows and all mirrors
  • To not use this multipurpose facility as a place for storage
    Sorry, there are no Mandates for this policy
