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.

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. Faster swimmers who want a more structured workout are invited to join the new Mills College Masters.

To find out more about high use pool times, please see Pool Programs.
