Pool Hours

From March 15, 2020 Until Futher Notice
The UMW Fitness Center is closed to encourage social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, and therefore all open rec swim hours are cancelled.

How to check in to open rec swim hours
All patrons swimming in the pool are required to inform the front desk that they are there to swim and then obtain a “Pool Pass” to give to the lifeguard. This will help with tracking who is using our pool, and then we will also know exactly who to contact when the pool hours change unexpectedly. Thanks for your understanding as we implement this new procedure!
