Student Apartment Gyms

How Used Gym Equipment Supports Student Apartment Gyms

Once upon a time, the average college student resided in a dorm with cinderblock walls and communal bathrooms. However, times have changed, and today’s collegiate crowd enjoys more stylish accommodations. Along with public study spaces, off-campus housing now features pools, coffee shops, saunas, and of course state-of-the-art fitness complexes. 

As student apartment construction rates skyrocket, developers are competing with one another to lure top tenants, and building amenities are becoming increasingly impressive as a result. Serving clients since 1989, Used Gym Equipment partners with student housing builders to create exceptional fitness facilities both nationally and abroad. Whether you need help sourcing affordable equipment or selecting the ideal layout for your gym facility, our team will be in your corner.

Student Apartment Gym Essentials

The high turnover rate associated with student apartments means that building owners are constantly on the lookout for new tenants. Along with enabling them to exercise without heading to a private or campus gym, on-site fitness facilities offer communal spaces for students to congregate and spend time together. Here are some of the key features to consider when building a student fitness center in your building:


It’s no secret that college students boast busy schedules. Between classes, homework, and part-time jobs, students have a limited amount of time to fit in a workout. With that in mind, the most desirable student apartment buildings feature fitness centers with flexible hours. Consider a 24/7 fitness facility so your tenants can exercise at whatever time of day is most convenient.


Today’s college students grew up with sophisticated technology at their fingertips. Hence, owners of student housing buildings need to take steps to ensure their fitness centers are truly state of the art. Along with including Wi-Fi hotspots in your gym, consider purchasing machines outfitted with HD touchscreen televisions and video workout options.

Features and Equipment

Attract more tenants by outfitting your student housing gym with the latest equipment and amenities. Along with high-end cardio and strength machines, today’s fitness facilities may feature TRX suspension training bands, yoga studios, pools, and even rock climbing walls.
