Opened on Jan. 31, 1998, the Campus Recreation Center Natatorium at the University of Maryland is one of the premier swimming and diving venues in the country. Featured in such national publications as Swimming Technique and International Aquatics magazines, the Campus Recreation Center Natatorium not only benefits the Maryland swimming and diving teams, but also the University of Maryland community itself.
The Campus Recreation Center Natatorium was part of the $40 million Campus Recreation Center. It features one 50x25-yard pool with two movable bulkheads and an underwater sound system. There are two one-meter diving boards and two three-meter diving platforms. The natatorium pool holds more than 1.5 million gallons of water.
With seating for more than 1,000 spectators, the Campus Recreation Center Natatorium has and will play host to such national and regional events as the 1999 and 2002 ACC Championships and the YMCA Nationals in the summer of 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003. The 1999 and 2000 FINA World Cups were held at the Campus Recreation Center Natatorium, making it the focus of national and international attention during the championships.
In addition to the natatorium, the Campus Recreation Center also has fitness and weight-lifting equipment, indoor basketball and volleyball courts, and an indoor track. A large outdoor pool complements the Campus Recreation Center and Natatorium, finishing a facility that is one of a kind and can only be found at the University of Maryland.
