Aquatics

During the academic semesters, Campus Recreation offers over 50 hours per week of recreation swim time to the campus community.

Boyden Pool, located next to the Commonwealth Honors College Complex, is available for lap and open swim. Curry Hicks Pool, located east of Garber Field & near Herter, is available for lap, open & family swim. 

Locker rooms provide easy access to the pool's deck.

Recreation equipment provided at the pools includes kickboards, pull buoys and swim fins. Patrons are welcome to bring their own goggles, training fins and hand paddles. To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants, please become familiar with the pool policies prior to your first visit. 

Campus Recreation also offers private, one-on-one swim lessons to recreation members -- for ages 6 and up with any skill level from beginners to swimmers with skill proficiency. 

Come on in and have a swim!
