Located just east of the main campus, the SMU Aquatic Center is a two-story collegiate competition-swimming venue. The center features an indoor Olympic 50-meter, 8-lane pool with springboards and diving platforms. A rotunda entryway serves as the focal point, which emulates the traditional Georgian architecture associated with the university. The aquatic center includes the latest technology such as high-resolution cameras above and below water to help with training and technique. The facility includes locker rooms, meeting space, VIP lounge, coaches’ office and spectator seating for 800.
