The Ohio University Aquatic Center provides academic, recreational and athletic opportunities for OHIO students and the surrounding communities.

The Aquatic Center is an indoor Olympic size pool (50 meters x 25 yards) with two diving boards at both the 1-meter and the 3-meter levels. The pool ranges in depth from 3½ feet in the shallow end, 7 feet in most lap lanes, to 12 feet under the diving boards. There is ample space for creative programming. Trained and certified through American Red Cross and National Recreation and Parks Association certification programs, the Aquatic Center staff operate the facility and programming within the facility.  In support of our mission, our student staff design a variety of programs and events for the communities we serve.  As we continue to develop and grow, we welcome you to be part of the Aquatic Center and participate in a lifelong sport.
