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!
