Keep the climbing wall open on weekends

Anonymous submitted on

Over the summer, the climbing wall will be closed over the weekends even though many still use it at these times. Please could the wall be kept open over the summer weekends to follow the opening hours of the rest of the sport and wellbeing facilities?

Thanks for putting in a You Make Change and your patience waiting for a reply. 

I have tried my best on this but regrettably there is not a lot that that can be done. Unfortunately as there are less students on campus it isn’t financial viable for SUSU to keep its buildings and facilities open during its regular term time hours.

On a related theme, after demand we have been trialing keeping the SUSU café open during the summer after the Shop has closed but there has been very low uptake on this and it has not been sustainable for SUSU to continue. If this shop trial offers any consolation it does show that with demand we can try new things but that high uptake of those trials would be necessary.

I have also explored if there was any possibility of us keeping Level One, with the climbing wall and squash courts, open longer after the rest of the building was shut. However, for safety reasons this is not possible.

I’m really sorry I couldn’t help more on this occasion, please don’t be disheartened and continue to write in with any more suggestions. I will always try my best for you.
