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. No children under the age of 16 are permitted in open lap swimming. Children may use the pools during family swim times. Family Swim is held during the academic year only; please click on the family swim link to view policies and fees.

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. Teagle Issue Room number (607) 255-1318. Helen Newman Hall Issue Room number (607) 255-8164.
