Bowman Gray Pool is working on repairing some pipes that burst this week.  Our rec/lap swim hours in Bowman Gray have been suspended while repairs are made.  We have some community partners who have opened their doors beginning Wednesday, January 10th, to our swimmers.  As visitors in these facilities we need to present a UNC OneCard and sign a waiver/agreement to gain access:

Pool Hours: Monday-Friday  12:15-2pm

2. Homestead Aquatic Center

*I’ve been informed that there are only 2 lanes available to lap swimmers after 7:30pm during the week, so it isn’t a great choice if you are an evening swimmer

We will get you back into the Carolina Blue water as soon as possible!

Are you ready to take the dive?

UNC’s Aquatics program is home to both an indoor and an outdoor pool, with lanes ranging from 25 yards to 50 meters and depths ranging from 3 to 10 feet. 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, first aid, and CPR/AED classes.
