The 300-seat natatorium features an Olympic-size swimming pool with the state-of-the-art design demanded for major competitions.  The planning was entrusted to Counsilman/Hunsaker, the internationally recognized consulting firm that has overseen pool construction for two Olympic Games.

The pool can be divided by bulkheads when necessary into smaller sections, such as the standard 25-yard lap used in collegiate meets.  It has several features meant to minimize wave action, including specially designed gutters, and a state-of-the-art heat-recovery and dehumidification unit to cut down on humidity.

The Aquatics Center has been home to the Capital Athletic Conference Men's & Women's Swimming Championships every February since 2006.
