Pool 30 is a six-lane, 25-meter pool. Walking through the men's or women's general locker rooms in the basement of Pearson McGonigle Hall will provide you access to this pool. 

The Campus Recreation Aquatics program provides informal recreational opportunities, such as lap swim in Pool 30, and structured group fitness programs, special events, and certifications in Pool 31. Professionally certified staff members are always on duty during all of our recreational aquatic programs and events.

The Aquatics facility is located in the basement of Pearson and McGonigle Halls; 1800 North Broad Street. Recreational and lap swimming is available in Pool 30. Hours of operation for this pool are listed above, as well as on the informal rec schedule, updated each semester. Specific hours are identified for lap swim only (L), allowing for productive workouts. All of the other hours are identified as open swimming.
