Make a Splash

Loyola University Maryland Recreational Sport's Aquatic program. Aquatics offers an amazing 10 lane 25 yard pool, a 4 lane 25 yard diving area, large hot tub, a dry sauna, and deck access to a family/gender neutral changing area and shower. We strive to meet the needs of all members of the Loyola community and hope to increase our programming opportunities. Our facilities depth ranges from 3'6" in our shallowest lane to 13' in our 1 and 3 meter diving area. The lap pool has an inclusive/adaptive entry with four wide steps with a hand railing and both the hot tub and lap pool have an automated lift rated to 400 pounds.

Aquatic Calendar

Lanes are available for lap swimming during hours of operation, but the Aquatic Center is shared with athletic team practices, user groups, and competitions. All or part of the pool may be closed periodically for special events/programming. Access to the shallow end and the adjoining lane will be open during varsity swim practice.
