(At ones own risk) Paper towels are available for your use to keep the equipment clean. Sign up requires an induction with the current Sidney Gym Officer, which can be arranged by emailing (gym email). A form also needs to be completed which will be sent by the Officer via email or during the induction. The cost of the gym is £45 per annum, or £15 per term. To enter the gym, collect a gym key from the porters – your college ID will be used as a deposit.
