Pool Schedule and Fees

Mills College reserves the right to deviate from the printed schedule from time to time. While every attempt will be made to inform patrons in advance when there will be a change, staffing issues, pool maintenance problems, weather and other safety issues may necessitate closing the pool without notice. We apologize for the inconvenience if that should occur.

During the summer and after 6:30 pm during the year, lap swimmers share lanes with other programs—swim lessons, water polo, staff training and classes. Having multiple user groups share the pool at the same time allows us to be able to offer more lap swim times.

Upcoming schedule changes:

  • Friday, March 13—Swim Meet, OPEN LATE 5:45 PM
  • Thursday, March 19—Swim Meet, OPEN LATE 5:45 PM
  • Saturday-Sunday, March 21-29—Spring Break, MODIFIED SCHEDULE
  • Saturday and Sunday, March 28 & 29—Swim Meet, POOL CLOSED
  • Saturday, May 16—Commencement, POOL CLOSED
  • Sunday, May 17—Swim Meet, POOL CLOSED
