PLEASE NOTE:

The Natatorium pools are often booked on weekends for special swim meets and events, including home football Saturdays. Natatorium hours may change daily based upon rental groups, special events or operational issues.  While we make every effort to maintain a consistent schedule, occasionally we do need to make last-minute scheduling adjustments.  To avoid disappointment, please check the calendars above prior to coming for your swim. We recommend you bookmark this page to make it easy to find before your next swim.

Please note the following "general" schedules are subject to change. Changes to the general schedules listed below will be reflected in the calendars above.

Availability of pools is subject to adequate staffing levels.  While we strive to achieve full staffing levels on a consistent basis, there may be times when lifeguards call in sick or otherwise fail to report for duty. In these rare instances, we may need to temporarily close one or more pools to ensure supervision levels consistent with Pennsylvania regulatory requirements. We thank you in advance for your understanding of these rare occasions.


Customer Service Hours:

The Customer Service Desk is staffed Monday - Friday from 7:30 AM - 2:30 PM and Sundays from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.


Outdoor Pool

Recreational Swim Times Summer 2014

June 12 - August 3, 2014

The Natatorium Outdoor pool is open to students, faculty, staff as well as members of the public.  During June and July our schedule is ever-changing as Swim Camps, Dive Camps and special events alter the standard schedule.  The grid charts should provide the most up-to-date version of the schedule. We recommend referring to the grid charts rather than to the general schedule below.

Our "open swim" pool layout consists of a large shallow water open area (4' - 5'2" in depth), followed by 6 short course (25yd) lane lines running the width of the pool, a deep water swim area equivalent to 3 lanes, and then a diving area for both a one meter board and the dive tower.  The top tower (10m) is closed to the public for safety reasons.
