Swimming is a workout that engages all major muscle groups while actively challenging your cardiovascular system.
Swimming is a great workout for all ages and those with physical differences. Great for injuries, water’s buoyancy accommodates those who have bone and joint concerns. The warmer, more humid air on pool decks can also be desirable for those with asthma.
There is a joyous association to being buoyant in water. Swimming creates a mental presence that can sometimes be hard to achieve during land exercise.
UREC has two 25-yard 6-lane pools. These pools are shared with a many other campus groups as well as SU Swimming. We offer daily lap swim and open swim hours available to all UREC members.
Pools are located on the 2nd floor of the Redhawk Center and include both a Men's and Women's locker room that each feature saunas.
Please be courteous of others in the pool. If sharing a lane, communicate about splitting the lane (2 swimmers per lane) and circle swimming (>swimmers per lane). Connect with a lifeguard for any questions or concerns about sharing a lane.
