I'd be impressed if you had the floor space for it in a room in halls, really.
As the poster above said - sell your car! I know very very few people who have felt the need to have a car at uni, a bike would be the healthier and far cheaper option.

Lol why not running outside??? So much better and way more relaxing.

what about vacations??
are you going to take your treadmill with you?
By the way, I think that you will need to get some kind of approval from university to bring it with you. Does it consume a lot of energy??

I really wouldn't.
- It will be noisy.
- It'll be annoying to transport.
- People will think it's weird.
- It'll take up lots of space in your likely tiny room.
- You can join the uni gym instead.
- Or better still, walk/run outside in the actual world.

I'd say do it if you want to Why care so much why other people think, hahah. You just want to keep fit, that is all! I wouldn't find it weird at all if another student brought their treadmill to uni. I would bring my exercise bike too, but it's way too big :P

What's wrong with planning a route for outside running? You'll only have to do it once and it'll last you at least a year.

I don't get why it's so strange...
...because you haven't been at uni yet. Believe me, once you've been a uni student, you'll understand why

Please think of the neighbours, it's bad enough hearing upstairs jumping on the bed nevermind the repetitive drone of someone going for a run for 30mins.
"jumping on the bed" :p:

how innocent.

When i first went to to uni my parents left one cuddly toy on my bed a bear thing i had when i was born, i didnt even see it there. Anyways my flatmates all walk in and theyre "Lol you have a cuddly toy whats with that" i later found it celotaped to my ceiling and my room turned upside down with a ransom note saying "Next time well take the bear"

To have that kind of banter from 1 TOY shows you the levels some people go to! so dont take a readmill or you will look very strange indeed.

Honestly if my flatmates had done this I wouldn't have flat mates anymore.

NOBODY and I mean NOBODY touches my teddy bear.

I don't get why it's so strange...but ok I'll think about taking it after freshers. What about my weight tree? it's only got three sets on it. I don't mind joining the gym but I already own everything I use so it seems silly to pay out for something I already have...
The great outdoors is FREE ffs. :facepalm:

OP why are you being so defensive? You ask a question, and you got an answer, yet you deny everyone lol

Bringing a treadmill to the dorm is just outrageous and not to mention annoying for your neighbours. It makes alot of noise.

Your just going to end up being hated.... Just simply join the uni gym. Why would you even exercise if you are that self concious to run outside or join a gym?

Because he has a treadmill I assume. I can understand him enjoying running and not wanting to do it in public (if he uses it as a stress reliever or whatever) but takin the treadmill is just going to give people reason to hate him. Normally this wouldn't matter coz it's his life but uni halls are ridiculously easy to break into and stuff like spilling a guys pint is sometimes enough to make people turn into thugs. Having to listen to a treadmill running all the time would make me want to stab you in the face.
