Allow students to pay for gym memberships monthly

Paying monthly is more affordable for a lot of students. I have seen around the University the benefits that exercise has on mental health, students who did vigorous exercise, were likely to perform better academically than those who did not. So I think having a monthly gym membership, or paying each term, will make the gym more accessible for people who cannot afford to pay such a large upfront cost.

Thank you for submitting this and apologies for how long it has taken for us to get back to you on this.
With our input, sport and wellbeing has now moved to a monthly membership of £12.99 for students (plus a free sports pass!) which will hopefully have a massive impact on making sports more accessible to everyone.
