Limited Lap Lanes

Historically, fall semester is the peak season for local competitive swimming and springboard diving at the high school, middle school, elite, and collegiate level. Promoting these sports include providing an opportunity for young swimmers and divers to participate in a team setting. Lap swimmers may encounter limited lap lanes available weekdays during 7:30-9:00 AM and 4:00-6:00 PM time blocks. 


All campus visitors are required to register their vehicle with UWF. Aquatic Center users can park in Parking Lot B, located next to the UWF Water Tower, and Lot J, located next to the tennis courts. Day users may obtain a Visitor Permit from the Visitors Center, Building 81, or Campus Police, Building 94. Aquatic Center Members are required to register their vehicle(s) with and receive an official parking permit from Parking Services, B. 20W. Please visit the UWF Parking and Transportation page for additional details and locations for obtaining permits.

Locker Rental

Lockers may be rented by pool members. Members purchase lockers for the semester or three-semester time block. On a semester basis, currently enrolled UWF students may also purchase locker use. Our lockers already have locks built into them so you do not need to bring your own. Daily users are encouraged to leave their valuable items at home. Do not leave belongings in the locker room or valuable items unattended.
