Aquatics Centre

West Pool

The Aquatic Centre houses two large indoor pools: the East Pool and the Winslow and Christian Hamilton Memorial Pool, commonly known as the West Pool.

Both pools are located in the Van Vliet Complex - one in the East Wing and one in the West Wing. The pools are used for a wide variety of programming and are open for use by students, staff, faculty members, and community members.

As a Provincial Training Centre for the Lifesaving Society, we offer all of the Lifesaving Society's programs, including learn-to-swim classes for children and adults, lifesaving, lifeguarding, & instructor certifications and recertification, and the Green & Gold Lifesaving Sport Club.

Additionally, we have numerous opportunities for fitness and fun with our morning fitness swim & other recreational opportunities & aquatic fitness classes.
