PED Indoor Pool

Dimensions: 25yd x 25yd (indoor heated pool)
Shallow Depth: 4ft
Deep Depth: 10ft

Due to severely crowded lanes at Uytengsu Aquatic Center, we offer the 12pm – 1pm rec swim hour at the PED indoor pool (for a fee). If you have paid the PED pool fee for the noontime swim, you need not pay again. Extending the PED 12-1pm rec swim is not possible since PED has swim classes scheduled during the day as well.

To swim in the indoor pool swimmers must pay a fee. USC students, faculty, and staff must show USC ID upon request. Inquire and register with lifeguard on duty.

Fee: Payable at the Lyon Center (PED locker rooms will be open 15 minutes before and after swim time)

A proficiency test may be required for recreational lap swimming, subject to the discretion of the lifeguards on duty.

Food and beverages are not allowed in the pool, deck area or locker rooms.  No glass water bottles are allowed on the deck or in the locker rooms.

Also located in the building are the LAS Business Office, Physical Education, Exercise Science, Kinesiology labs, Dance Studios (Theatre and Dance Departments only), and several ROTC offices.


PED Lockers

Locker rooms, showers, and restroom facilities are available in the PED locker room during restricted hours. Rental of PED lockers is operated through the PED Department (PED 108).

Additional staff/faculty locker rooms are available for a fee. The men’s staff/faculty locker room also includes a small weight room.
