UBC Aquatic Centre

New Aquatic Centre – Now Open!

The new UBC Aquatic Centre consists of three different pools and a hot tub, becoming one of the few facilities in Canada to have a high performance and recreation amenities under the same roof. This includes a 50m competition pool, a 25m recreation pool, as well as a leisure pool. With a deeper-than-average competition pool depth of 2.5m, and permanent seating for almost 500, the new facility can accomodate the hosting of major swim meets, water polo, synchronized swimming events and a variety of aquatic programming.

The new UBC Aquatic Centre has been purpose-built for the current and future needs of students, staff, faculty and residents of UBC’s Point Grey campus. The bright, open facility design brings in an abundance of natural light which underlines the open and inclusive community space. This one-level facility includes a ramp entrance into both the leisure and the 25m recreation tanks, as well as a lift into the hot tub.
