My comment is that tuition dollars don't pay for these things either.

Would you prevent out-of-state and foreign tuition-paying students from using these facilities for intramurals and recreation, since their families didn't fund the bond issues? (I guess taxpayer funded facilities include classrooms too, no?)

What about US citizen/out-of-state athletes? No athletic scholarships for them and no use of the facilities since their families did not fund those tax-exempt bonds either?
