University Recreation Aquatics Overview

The University of Alabama has four swimming pools located on campus to serve the students, faculty and staff of the University as well as the surrounding community. The Aquatic Center is home to the University of Alabama Swimming and Diving team and is complete with an Olympic pool and diving platforms. The Natatorium houses an 8 lane 25yd pool that is available in the morning and evenings for recreation swim. The Aquatic Center also has a 3,000 sq.ft weight room with free weights, Cybex Selectorized machines and cardio equipment. These facilities allow University Recreation to offer a variety of aquatic programming including: Swim lessons for all ages and abilities, lifeguard training, CPR/AED training, First Aid training, lifeguard instructor training, Master's Swimming, and Water Safety Instructor training.

Healthy Swimming

Remember, you share the pool water with everyone.  You can help keep germs from causing recreational water illnesses by practicing good hygiene and not swimming when sick.  Additional practices to help keep germs out of the pool include ensuring your kids take restroom breaks, changing diapers at diaper-changing areas only, and showering before swimming.  Limited handouts are available at the Outdoor Pool Welcome Station/Check-in Counter.  For additional information, visit
