Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center

Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center

Located at 235 Hope Street, the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center opened in May 2012 and is home to Brown University's Swimming, Diving, & Water Polo teams. The pool is 56 Meters in Length x 25 Yards in Width, & most of the pool is 7-9 ft deep. The diving well is 13 ft deep. The facility has a seating capacity for 400 spectators & a state of the art video HD scoreboard. For the summer months, the pool is set up 3.5 days long course & 3.5 days short course. During the academic year, the pool is set up for short course only. The pool is typically separated into three different "pools" with movable bulkheads. The "shallow" is most often used for Rec Swim, while the "Middle" & "Deep" pools are used for a combination of swim programs & Rec Swim.

The facility also features varsity locker rooms for the Men's and Women's Swimming, Diving, and Water Polo teams, dedicated locker rooms for Male and Female faculty, general use locker rooms for Male and Female students and staff, and a gender-inclusive, accessible locker room.
