The Reeves Aquatic Center consists of two pools:
an 8-lane, 25-yard lap pool and a 3-lane, 20-yard teaching pool. The Aquatic Center is located on the lower level of the Sports Center and can be accessed through the Jacobs Fitness Center along with the locker rooms and showers. Recreational Sports & Fitness members share the facility with the American University Varsity Swim Team, AU health & fitness classes, and Nation's Capital Swim Club.
The Reeves Aquatic Center is accessible to all Recreational Sports & Fitness
members and AU students. There are no pool-only memberships available.
Swimmers are encouraged to bring their own locks, goggles, and towels, however, rental lockers and towels are available for purchase at the Fitness Center front desk. Kickboards, paddles, pull buoys, and aqua joggers are available free of charge for general use.
