Welcome to the Art Linkletter Natatorium

Our six-lane pool is available for use by students, faculty, staff, and alumni. 

Art Linkletter Natatorium

The Springfield College Art Linkletter Natatorium is a six-lane, 50-meter pool with two, one-meter and two, three-meter diving boards. The water depth ranges from four to 12 and a half feet.

The facility is home to the College's competitive swimming and diving team, and is also the venue for several physical education classes, Red Cross certification classes, recreational swimming, and a number of campus and non-campus programs. The size of the facility allows for concurrent programs on a daily basis.
