Swimming & Diving Pool

The swimming and diving pool is home to the Carnegie Mellon University varsity swimming and diving teams and serves as a recreational space for the campus community. The pool was constructed in 1996 and is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows allowing in natural light. A balcony was added in 2015 which seats up to 200 people.
