First, yes, I intended to use it when they aren't using it.
But, maybe you failed to read the whole post. They plan on changing the policy, essentially preventing people from using it at all. This is a public college, meaning it is partly funded by taxes. I have heard by a few it is illegal for them to close it off from the public if they aren't using it, unless they have an equivalent track (they don't). Could someone riddle me that?
