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.
