    The EWU Aquatic Center was completed in October of 1980 and was the fifth and final phase of the Sports and Recreation Center.

    Featuring an L shaped design, the pool measures 25 meters North to South with eight lanes and 25 Yards East to West with six lanes.

    The pool holds about 285,000 gallons of water and features an 18 foot diving tank which is one of the deepest in the Pacific Northwest.
