UWS rolls out free gym mem­ber­ships

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Univer­sity of the West of Scot­land (UWS) has rolled out free gym mem­ber­ship for all its stu­dents.

Last week, we re­ported how the univer­sity’s new fa­cil­ity had opened at Hamil­ton In­ter­na­tional Tech­nol­ogy Park.

Now, UWS chiefs hope this lat­est move will en­sure all stu­dents can get ac­tive and pur­sue a healthy life­style.

Pro­fes­sor Craig Ma­honey, prin­ci­pal and vice-chan­cel­lor at UWS, said:“at UWS we pro­mote a vi­sion for sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity which ev­ery­one can be a part of, and which con­trib­utes to our or­gan­i­sa­tional iden­tity and cul­ture to pos­i­tively im­pact our stu­dents’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Of­fer­ing stu­dents a free UWS gym mem­ber­ship high­lights that we are in­vest­ing in our stu­dent body, help­ing them to ex­cel and be the best ver­sions of them­selves. Phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in­stils in­valu­able skills such as re­silience, con­fi­dence and col­lab­o­ra­tion and th­ese skills are trans­fer­able be­yond univer­sity and into the world of work.”

Emma Shot­ter, pres­i­dent of the Stu­dents’as­so­ci­a­tion of UWS, said:“be­ing able to ac­cess cam­pus gyms for free is an ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive for stu­dents and we are de­lighted that this is be­ing rolled out.”
