    Extended Operating Hours at Danielle Brown University Gym


      Dear Students and Faculty members. 

      We are advocating for a significant extension of operating hours at the Danielle Brown University Gym to address the issue of overcrowding and limited accessibility to gym facilities. 

      Currently, the facility operates from 6am to 10pm weekdays and 8am – 7:30pm weekends.  

      This timeframe is insufficient to cater to the needs of the growing student population in proximity to Danielle Brown. Paired with the gym's current size it is no longer convenient, resulting in excessive overcrowding and longer waiting times. To a busy student who has other commitments these current operating hours are not sufficient.  

      By extending the gym's operating hours, we can significantly alleviate these challenges and provide students with ample opportunity to utilise the gym facilities at their convenience. Extending the hours would distribute the gym usage throughout the day, thereby reducing overcrowding during peak times. 

      In addition, an expanded gym schedule would enhance the university's appeal by positioning our gym as a more enticing option compared to neighbouring fitness facilities such as Gym Group addressing the concerns of added cost from increased operating hours.  

      Accommodating a broader range of availability would also attract more students to utilise the university gym, fostering a healthier and more active campus community whilst increasing financial gains and student morale. 

      Let us work together to invest in the physical well-being of our students and create a thriving campus environment where everyone can achieve their fitness goals conveniently and efficiently. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of our fellow students and enhance the overall fitness culture. 

      Thank you for your time and consideration.
