A child swimming at the University of Stirling

Swimming pool

The University Swimming Pool is open daily to the public for recreational and lane swimming. We also offer swimming lessons for children and adults.

Our pool forms part of the National Swimming Academy, a partnership between the University, Scottish Swimming and British Swimming.

It is 50m long and can be divided into two 25m pools, one with an adjustable depth floor. As well as public swimming, it is used by the University and by Scottish Swimming, British Swimming and triathlonscotland for elite athlete training.
