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

The Aquatics program is located in Pearson and McGonigle Halls Pool 30 and 31. Recreational swimming is available in Pool 30. Hours of operation are listed on the informal rec schedule each semester. Specific hours are identified for lap swim only (L), allowing for productive workouts, with other hours identified as open swimming.
