Butler University Aquatics Promo

HRC Swimming Pool


Serious and casual swimmers alike will feel at home in the Aquatic Center. Our 25-yard lap pool contains six individual swimming lanes, and feeds into a spacious leisure pool featuring bubble benches and a current channel. We even have basketball hoops and volleyball nets that can be set up at any time (just ask a lifeguard). The Aquatic Center also offers patrons use of a hot tub and sauna, perfect for relaxation or sports therapy.

Our staff works year-round to develop programs to suit our patrons' needs. If you have a suggestion for a program you'd like to see, please feel free to speak with a lifeguard or send us a message at

HRC Aquatics Center Re-open

The HRC Aquatic Center (pools, spa, and sauna) has re-opened and returned to regular hours. We hope you find that our Butler Facility partners did an outstanding job addressing all the needs. A quick summary of the work completed includes:

  • Replaced all overhead and underwater lights with LEDs
  • Replaced the plaster in the lap pool
  • Replaced the pumps for the lap and leisure pools as well as the spa
  • Replaced the sauna heater
  • Painted the steel girders overhead
  • Various paint touch-ups
  • Repaired tile in the leisure pool
  • Repaired deck tile throughout the Aquatic Center
  • Added support to the grates surrounding the pools
  • High dusting and deep cleaning


We offer pre-made swim workouts, and even have swim belts and diving bricks available for use here in the center. We do ask that you review Lap Swimming Etiquette prior to your workout!


We offer Swim Lessons for all ages and abilities (no HRC membership required). Several American Red Cross Safety Courses also are offered at the HRC.
