NOTE: Use of the facility is restricted to those 18 years of age and older.
As with athletic facilities at many academic institutions, the pools will often be closed during school breaks, so calling ahead is especially worthwhile.

Facility Reviews
People in the 50m pool tend to be more aggressive and better swimmers. Those who use the 25y Benson pool tend to be weaker swimmers. The pools can be busy, but evening swims tend to be quieter. The shower facilities are not fancy at all but clean.
The pools are mostly crowded, especially with people swimming too slowly for the speed of lane they're chosen; and the locker room bathrooms are not clean by any standard I feel comfortable with. And don't get me started on the field house.
The facility has two sets of change rooms: one for facility members that gives access to the steam room and lockers for rent; the other is used for programs that rent the pool facility and is more basic. [July, 2014]
