Fahim Chaudhury started this petition to NYU's Board of Trustees

NYU wants to develop a new athletic facility on the site of Coles as part of a new building that will also include classrooms, specialized space for performing arts education and practice, student housing, and faculty housing. Instead, NYU should renovate Coles, and acquire a new property to build new classrooms, specialized space for performing arts education and practice, student housing, and faculty housing. There will be many inconveniences in the interim period while the new gym is being built and some facilities will not return in the same form, such as outdoor running track and tennis courts. While the new gym is being built, the NYU community will have access to only one pool (at Palladium). Furthermore, current students may not be able to use the new gym at all, as it won't be built in the near future.
