Swimming Pool

At 25 metres long and 18 metres wide, the University Swimming Pool qualifies as a short course competition pool and is home to a number of University sports clubs.

Based on University Park Campus, the pool has a movable floor at the shallow end, which allows for greater flexibility on the number of activities available.

As well as serving the needs of the University community, the swimming pool also operates an external memberships system.
