The University of Exeter is home to two swimming pools across its Exeter campuses.
St Luke's indoor pool is open throughout the year and operates our Learn to Swim programme. Cornwall House outdoor pool (Streatham) is open throughout summer, making it the ideal place for a relaxing dip.
Both facilities are available for casual and lane swimming.
St Luke's Indoor Pool
Our 22.8meter 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 casual swim sessions the two lanes are put in place, allowing areas for swimmers to take 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 Amateur Swimming Association’s (ASA) guidelines and caters for children aged three years and over.
Casual swimming times
Please view our term dates page for full term/vacation dates.
Our indoor pool is also available for private bookings. For further information on availability and prices, please contact St Luke's Sports Centre on 01392 724940.
Cornwall House Outdoor Pool
The outdoor pool is due to re-open on Friday 22 April 2016. 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.
Cornwall House 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 parking is available on North Park Road or at car park B. Both are free at weekends and evenings but pay and display during the week.
