Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

Pool 1 is known as the "Royer Pool", the "WIC Royer Pool", the "HPER Pool", and the "SPH Pool". The diving well is in the same section of the building.
Pool 2 is known as "Pool 194". It's the university's original pool, in the old part of the gym, and opened with the building in 1917. It is used primarily for special purposes, such as when the other pools on campus are closed during breaks, and is regularly used for women-only swims. (Admission is covered with the same pass as the rest of the building.)

The pool's unusual length is thought to be due to the fact that Olympic standards had not yet been established when the pool was built and the 88-foot length works out so that exactly 60 lengths makes a mile.

The tile work in this part of the building includes swastikas. There's a plaque to explain that the pool was built back when the swastika was just a Hindu sign for peace, before the Nazis adopted it.
Note that the pool hours schedule shown on the page linked to the "website", above, also includes the hours for the "SRSC Counsilman/Billingsly Aquatic Center" (CBAC), which has a separate Swimmers Guide listing, HERE.

Facility Reviews

The Royer Pool is an older but perfectly fine pool. Considering that it's right in the middle of campus, it's surprisingly not too busy. You can borrow a towel for $1 and borrow locks for the day. The day pass also lets you use the gym facilities. Staff is super friendly. The other pool on campus is definitely bigger, newer, and better, but this one is really convenient.
[May, 2017]
This is a nice place to swim. It's older but clean, has equipment available to use, and the water was super clear and a good temp. It wasn't crowded on a Wednesday morning between 6 and 7. It has nice locker rooms and is conveniently located near downtown on the campus.
