Make the gym free. :)

Hi Farsal,


Thank you for your suggestion and apologies for the lateness of my reply.

Whilst I share the dream of free gym membership, unfortunately the likelihood of this happening is very slim. Sport and Wellbeing facilities cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to maintain on an annual basis and the cost of this has to come from somewhere - the obvious choice is to pass this cost onto the students who are making use of the facilities. I am focusing my efforts on making this more affordable for students by asking for the option to split up payments throughout the year, and for senior university staff to invest into the student experience, hopefully this will result in some form of subsidy for Sport and Wellbeing membership. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this in further detail.


Best wishes,

Steve Gore
