The pool at UMass Boston is not only the home of water safety and recreation on campus, but it is home to twelve guards all of whom are beacons. The pool has a diverse group of staff varying in age and ethnicity that reflects the diversity of the university’s student body. Most of our guards are WSI (Water Safety Instructor) Certified and facilitate our swimming lessons throughout the year. Swimming lessons and stopping by for open swim are great opportunities to meet our staff and other peers during time off from studies or on breaks. If you have any inquiries ranging from the atmosphere of the pool to student employment opportunities, feel free to contact the pool or drop by during open hours. We are happy to answer any questions, and would be delighted to see you, together we can make a wave of smiles!
UMass Boston Aquatics is thrilled to be a resource to the community as well as a beacon in the world of Aquatics. Our ongoing mission is to be a leader in swim instruction, drowning prevention, and facility safety.
