Maguire Pool
As part of the campus master plan, and as shared during the November 16, 2022 "A Place to Soar" event, reimagining the current footprint occupied by the Maguire pool is included in the scope of the Athletics Complex renovation. As such, the pool will not reopen after construction begins in August 2023. We are working to confirm a temporary local alternate aquatics facility for use until the new natatorium is complete and will provide those details as soon as they are finalized.
