Have Your Say on Campus Fitness Space by Voting in the AMS Referendum

Did you know that UBC has .15 square feet of recreation (fitness) space per student, which is one of the lowest in the country?  Based on a petition from student leaders there is a referendum taking place from March 6-10 and is online (https://amsvoting.as.it.ubc.ca/). The AMS is supporting a yes vote to improve student well-being, community building, intramural programming and the student experience.

The question being asked is:

Do you support the AMS establishing a graduated fee (“The Fee”) to contribute to the construction of a student fitness and recreation building at UBC Vancouver?

The facility reflects significant student needs for fitness, gymnasium space and multipurpose space. The new facility would include the:

  • 3 recreational gym courts (doubling the current SRC space)
  • 35,000-45,000 sq. ft. of new fitness space
  • 10,000 ft. of support space (office, multi-purpose space)

All students, undergraduate and graduate, can vote in the referendum from March 6-10. Have your say!
