The Trefethen Aquatic Center is home to one of the most popular attractions on campus—our crystal blue outdoor swimming pool. This 10-lane pool is the springboard for the Mills College swim team and a draw for all students, members of the Mills community, and the general public who like to take a dip.
The pool is also the site of the Swim-a-Mile for Breast Cancer fundraiser, an annual event which raises money for breast cancer research. The Trefethen Aquatic Center—which also includes a large therapy spa—is a campus destination for athletic competition, exercise, or relaxation.
The center was dedicated in April 1998 in memory of Eugene Trefethen, a long-time Mills trustee and a strong supporter of intercollegiate athletic programs at the College.
