Our Facilities

NSU Aquatics currently operates three swimming pools designed to meet all of your aquatic needs:

  • Competition Pool: One of Florida's largest outdoor pools (5' to 16.5' depth), convertible between Olympic (50m) and NCAA (25y) standards. Dividable by a floating bulkhead.
    • Diving Well: Separate well with space for 7 short-course yards (SCY) lanes, featuring two 1-meter and one 3-meter diving boards.
  • Main Leisure Pool: This half-Olympic sized pool (up to 5ft deep) offers year-round swimming inside the NSU RecPlex. Perfect for relaxation, it features lounge chairs, shaded areas, and tables. Our learn-to-swim program calls this pool home, and it's a popular spot for campus events.
  • Rolling Hills Pool: Exclusive to residents, this resort-style pool features beautiful landscaping, a rock waterfall, and a zero-entry point. Relax by the pool, party with friends, or even study in the indoor lounge or outdoor pavilion.
