Our Swimming Pool

swimming pool

Stony Brook University reopened its renovated swimming pool on May 15, 2017.

The pool is located in the Sports Complex across from the Recreation & Wellness Center. Enter the locker rooms and go downstairs to find the patron entrance.

With a maximum depth of 13 feet, six 25-yard lanes, and several competition diving boards, the reconstructed pool facility features a state-of-the-art movable floor in the shallow end, an enhanced automated mechanical system that includes remote monitoring to aid in pool maintenance, and an updated air conditioning system with multi-season climate control. To accommodate Seawolves fans, new bleachers expand seating capacity to 260 while keeping accessibility in mind.

"The University Pool is about our campus and our pride," Director of Athletics Shawn Heilbron said. "We have a historic legacy here. My hope is that this new addition to our campus will allow our students and alumni to really enjoy our Swimming and Diving tradition moving forward."
