Please note: the temperature of the pool is 28°C, which makes it cooler than most. This pool is a training centre for high-performance athletes and must be maintained at this temperature. Due to the annual shutdown of the university’s steam plant during the month of June, pool temperatures will be closer to 27°C.

In the event of an unplanned pool closure, a credit will be placed on the computer file of the swimming lesson participants affected. The credit amount will be for the missed class only and can be used for any Active Living program for one year. Where possible, every effort will be made to notify parents and/or participants of the closure. Please note: Only children four and under are allowed in the opposite-gender change room.
