The J.C. Scrap Chandler Pool, located inside the ODU Student Recreation Center, is an 8 lane, 25 yard indoor pool with depths between 4 and 15 feet. The temperature is set between 78-80 degrees because it is a competition pool. Locker and shower facilities are available. Members can participate in a variety of programs including:

If you have questions about the pool or any of our programs, please reach out to our Coordinator of Aquatics, Lexi Ricciuti.
Celebrate spooky season with floating pumpkins, pumpkin painting, a splash in the pool, and a Halloween movie! We will be playing Halloweentown beginning at 12:30 p.m. We look forward to having your family at the Old Dominion University pool!Learn More
