UNC Asheville’s swimming pool is a 6-lane, 25-yard pool located on the lower level of the Student Recreation Center. The pool is home to Campus Recreation programs and the UNC Asheville Women’s Swim and Dive Team. Lap swim and open recreation swim times are available to current OneCard and Recreation pass-holders only. Open Lap swim requires patrons to sign up for sessions in advance via the Campus Recreation App. View more information here on how to get started in setting up your account.

The pool may also be reserved by organizations or groups.

Each semester we offer a selection of Lifeguard Certification and Re-Certification courses.
