Our Aquatics program is home to two indoor pools and one seasonal outdoor pool. The program also offers swim lessons year-round for swimmers of all levels and ages in addition to health and safety courses, such as lifeguarding and first aid and CPR/AED classes. In addition, we offer free weekly swim instruction with our free Swim for Fitness Programs. 

All of our programs are open to Recreation members and some, like Youth Learn-to-Swim and Red Cross trainings are open to the general public. No matter the level of skill or interest, there is something for everyone in Duke Aquatics. Try us: You will love it!

Central Campus Pool Update: Due to the University's plans regarding Central Campus and the pool’s location, Central Campus pool will not be operational for the foreseeable future. Moving forward we will continue to operate Brodie Aquatics Center and Taishoff Aquatics Pavilion.
