The Recreation & Wellness Center pool offers users 6 lanes of 25 yards to lap swim, a generous shallow water area for activities and a whirlpool vortex.

The pool is available to all students, faculty/staff and community members at various times throughout the day. Please visit our hours of operation page for the most up-to-date pool hours.

Please be aware that the pool closes for inclement weather, such as thunder and/or lightning. Our staff uses "WeatherTap" software to monitor the weather throughout the day. If lightning and/or thunder is detected:

  • Lifeguards will immediately inform swimmers they must exit the pool.
  • The pool deck will be cleared, and users will be asked to enter the locker rooms.
  • The pool will be closed for a minimum of 30 minutes at each lightning detection and/or sound of thunder.
    • The 30-minute timer will start once the last patron has cleared the pool/pool deck.
    • The 30-minute clock will start over at each detection of lightning and/or sound of thunder.

These protocols are in place to ensure the utmost safety for our students, faculty/staff and members. Failure to follow the instructions of recreation department staff could result in losing membership/access to the recreation center and associated programs.
