Carleton students approve fee increase to fund new fitness centre

March 5, 2012

In a vote last month, 2,729 Carleton University students -- approximately 70% of those who voted -- cast their ballots in favour of increasing the athletics fee by $12.50 per term in support of a new 11,000-square-foot fitness centre. Too small to support Carleton's student population of nearly 27,000, the current 5,700-square-foot fitness centre will be converted into 2 sections: a high-performance athlete heavy weight room and a general student activity space for fitness and dance. Construction of the $2-million fitness centre is slated for completion in spring 2013. Carleton News
