Hi Sami, at my university they don’t have appointment times for you to go to the gym, you just go on weekdays from six in the morning to 11 at night, and on the weekends from 11 in the morning to 10 at night.

However, I'm not sure if my school's gym actually has a weight room, and may only have balls to throw.  Do most college gyms actually contain an exercise room? Because my high school gym had one (which I frequently used while my classmates were playing other visual sports), but I know that most elementary-through-high schools don't.

My school has this intermural sports event called "open gym" at least one evening a week, which essentially means that anyone can come and use their equipment.  But I don't know if on other days, you may need to make an appointment or if you can just show up at the gym.

As far as having a regular schedule, I generally try to go in the late evening or early morning before classes started.  You can be pretty flexible with the gym time, I think.  College campus gyms are usually open pretty late.

> First, are you able to manage the gym and the machines independently, or do you need sighted help to set up a machine? I know that I have a lot of friends who would be willing to go with me at various times, but I don't want to rely on them all the time.  I am more into moving equipment like the treadmill, stairmaster and excercise bike, and also like swimming.
> My second question is more general: How do you manage to fit in excercise as a priority? Do you go on set days and times? My concern is that I might start the semester wanted to go on certain days, but then have to attend events and extracirriculars on these days.
