The Customer Service Desk is staffed Monday - Friday from 7:30 AM - 2:30 PM and Sundays from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Our recreational swim times are considered public events. As such, parents are expected to supervise their minor children at all times.

All pool passes must be presented to the Customer Service attendant on the pool deck.

Students with Fitness Pass memberships must present their ID to the Customer Service attendant on the pool deck who will swipe your ID to verify your FitPass membership. Those with Semester or Annual passes should present their pass to the Customer Service attendant on the pool deck.  Those without their passes will be asked to return to the locker room to recover the pass.  No admission will be allowed without a valid pass.

Indoor Pool Passes are valid only at the Indoor Pools. Both the Natatorium Indoor Pools and the White Building pool operate on a very limited schedule over the summer months and may close during certain periods for maintenance or special events, including swim meets and sport camps. By conducting maintenance and repairs over the summer, we are able to minimize interruptions in service during the academic year. Please plan your purchase acccordingly.
