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.

Streatham Campus Outdoor Pool 

The outdoor pool is open until 29 September 2017. 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.

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.
