Gym Membership Referendum

All Full-Time students currently pay a levy for a gym membership with SVFitness. The current Gym membership contract is €80 for all Full-Time students and was voted in by the student body in 2018 via a referendum.   Part-time students don’t pay the levy but have the option to avail of the membership upon registration at the same rate

Every 3 years, a referendum is put to the students to decide on whether the levy should be extended. 

The current levy expires in September 2021, therefore, students will also be asked to vote on the current gym membership agreement with SVFitness and whether this levy should be extended for a further 3 years.
