Possible locations upper campus car park, and on the lower campus near D11 the location of the decommissioned compost facility and bore water treatment plant. UNSW’s Bike Campus map: www.facilities.unsw.edu.au/Maps/pdf/Kensington_Bicycle_Map.pdf displays a small number of showers however these are not very accessible. Other than the showers in the Gym, the showers are all in male toilets. The Gym showers are not convenient for students and staff reaching upper campus. Macquarie University opened two Bike Hubs just like this in April 2010. See <www.mq.edu.au/transport/bike_hub.html >.
