The swimming pool is located inside of the Gymnasium (Gym 121) and is accessible through the men’s and women’s lockers rooms. The indoor pool is 6 lanes across and twenty-five yards in length with depths of 4’ to 10’. All patrons of the pool must show valid SF State identification prior to using the facility. Since towels and shoes are the only personal items allowed on the pool deck, Campus Recreation encourages participates to purchase a locker to store their larger personal belongings.

Even though the department does not anticipate closing the pool during regularly scheduled hours, the facility can be closed and swim classes could be cancelled on short notice. Please refer to the Activities Calendar for up to date facility hours and class times.
