Pool Hours

ALL SWIMMERS MUST HAVE A POOL TAG AND SHOW IT TO THE GUARD ON DUTY.
All swimmers must also follow these General Pool Rules.

Adult Open lap swim times are open to Wellness Recreation Members, campus club members and students. All students get FREE access to the pools during open swim and aqua group fitness classes. Faculty and Staff need a Wellness Recreation Membership or purchase a day/guest pass to swim or attend classes.

Please note: Pool hours are subject to change. We try to post changes two weeks in advance, however, due to circumstances outside of our control, sometimes that is not possible. Please check back to this site frequently to view the most up-to-date hours of operation. Hours of operation are also posted outside HNH and Teagle Issue Room windows.

** Stay tuned for more Fin Fitness coming in December! ALL ARE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO TRY OUT THIS NEW OFFERING. Check class times here.

 

Additional Notes: 

  • Hydro PT is for differently-abled swimmers, non-traditional lap swimming, and those needing physical therapy pool time. Hydro PT may also be done during any HNH open swim time in lane 6 (3 mesh bags available w/ gear).
  • The pool stairs at HNH are broken and we are currently in the process of researching new and improved ones to purchase. The hydraulic lift is operational and may be used to enter/exit the pool. If you need assistance, please ask the lifeguard on duty.
  • W Only refers to Women Only Open Lap Time
  • If there are limited lanes during the morning, swimming is limited to experienced swimmers only
