    Water covers more than three-fourths of the earth’s surface. It is the essence of all life on earth and has the power to move even mountains. In the Turner Center, we have harnessed more than 700,000 gallons for your use. Whether you are an accomplished swimmer, someone who enjoys water activities or are just beginning to learn a new aquatic activity, Campus Recreation has an aquatic program for you. So get your swimsuit on and jump in!

    Aquatic Courses Schedule

    Not only is swimming a great way to workout and have fun, it is also a lifesaving skill! We have revamped our swim lesson program to provide you with a better swimming experience! We have made the classes longer, as well as added age groups! Registrations can only be done in the Aquatics office, so head to the pool to reserve your spot!

    ADA Offerings

    The pool has entry and exit points at various locations. In addition to the steps, we have two other options to assist those who have difficulty entering or exiting.

    A Portable Aquatic Lift is available as an Easy Ladder. The ladder is located on the wall near the lifeguard stand on the north side of the pool.

    The aquatics staff will also help anyone requesting assistance.



    Swim Around Oxford

    Swim Around Oxford Shirt

    This is a new way of getting you to incorporate swimming back into your workout routine. Each time you swim, sign in and record the number of yards you swam. We will keep track of your yardage by plotting your mileage around Oxford. Once you make the 20-mile swim around Oxford, you will receive a Swim Around Oxford T-shirt. Come check out the Swim Around Oxford board on the pool deck.

    If interested, stop by the Aquatics Office or email for further information.
