Please note that reservations are required for all classes, programs, and facility use. To best meet the needs of our students and campus community, Campus Recreation facilities, classes and activities, will only be available for currently registered students, faculty, and staff. 

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 Team. Lap swim and open recreation swim times are available to current OneCard and Recreation pass-holders only. The pool may also be reserved by organizations or groups.

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