Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Recreation Natatorium


The Recreation Natatorium is located on the ground floor of the RPAC. The lap pool, leisure pool, dry saunas and recreation spa are available during every hour that the Aquatic Center is open. Special events, classes or maintenance projects may create occasional modification of these hours. A detailed availability schedule for each location is available by visiting the recreational swimming page.
