Swimming pools

The University of Exeter is home to two swimming pools across its Exeter campuses.

Outdoor pool on Streatham campus

The outdoor pool is now open until late September 2018! Open seven days a week during the summer months, our four lane, 25 metre outdoor swimming pool is set in a large grass and patio area, heated to a constant 29ºc and staffed by qualified lifeguards making it great for relaxing during those warm summer days.

Within the pool facility, we also have 6 changing room lockers, 2 toilets, 3 open showers and 12 small storage lockers.

Cornwall House Outdoor Pool is located at the rear of Cornwall House which is number 80 on the Streatham campus map. There is limited parking near the pool but visitor parking is available on campus.

Please note that in adverse weather conditions, we may not be able to open the pool for health and safety reasons. We advise customers to call ahead on 01392 722515 to avoid disappointment.

Indoor pool at St Luke's

Our 22.8 meter indoor swimming pool at St Luke’s Sports Centre is heated to a constant 29°c, is four lanes wide and 2.5 meters deep at the deep end.

During swim sessions, two lanes are put in place allowing areas for swimmers to choose their own pace. For private bookings and special events, starting blocks and swimming floats are also available.

The pool is also home to our acclaimed Learn to Swim programme, which helps over 700 children learn to swim every week. The swim school takes place throughout the week and follows the Swim England guidelines and caters for children aged three years and over.

We also hold a number of pool-based adult education courses and Adult Swimming Lessons at St Luke’s pool.
