Thank you for choosing Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center. We have many user groups throughout the year. These user groups include, but are not limited to, high school swim team practices, VU water polo, swim, tri club practices, and kayaking clinics. All of these exciting activities may limit the number of lanes that are available. Most of the VU activities occur in the evening during the academic year, while the high school swim teams practice from mid-September through mid-February from 3:45 pm until 7:30 pm Monday through Friday. Should you choose to swim during a scheduled activity, and/or prime time, please be prepared for a limited number of lanes available. Swimmers are required to share lanes when necessary.
