Numerous Keble students have been disappointed by the college’s decision to remove speakers from their gym. The gym remains popular amongst college students, yet concerns have been expressed regarding the fact they were not told of the speaker’s removal at the beginning of term, and they are keen for them to be reinstated. However, some students prefer the gym’s newfound silence.
A Keble student comments: ‘Normally, most people are happy to listen to their own music with earphones anyway- I think the silent gym shouldn’t really be an issue, as everyone has different music tastes and preferences to what they work out to’.
It is unclear whether the speakers will be replaced.
