Open Swim

One aspect of our commitment to allowing students to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle is our open swim hours! We offer open swim Monday-Thursday, twice a day. So if you're looking to get an early swim in before classes, the first open swim time slot is 11:30am - 1:30pm. If your days are just too busy, we also offer open swim at night from 8:00pm-10:00pm.

To get to the pool, enter through either the men's or women's locker room located on the bottom floor of Kaiser Hall. Full-time students are able to swipe-in to the pool free of charge (remember your Blue Chip!). Whether you want to do laps, get a workout in, or just relax in the water, Kaiser pool is the place to go! 

Aqua Fitness Classes

If you're looking to get in a good workout by yourself or with friends, we also offer a fun aqua fitness class on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (8:00pm - 8:30pm)!
