Chandler Pool

Chandler Pool is one of the finest swimming and diving facilities in New England, with an eight-lane competition pool and a one- and three-meter diving well. Home to the Wellesley varsity swimming and diving team, Chandler Pool also hosts a range of swimming programs for the local community, is the practice site for the Wellesley College Water Polo Club, and is open to students, faculty, and staff during recreational swim hours.

The Keohane Sports Center and Chandler Pool are closed for the summer. Please contact Marni Friedman (, Associate Director for Facilities & Operations, with any questions. KSC and athletic facilities are not currently available to Wellesley College students, faculty, staff, or union employees, nor to memberships (alumni, professor emeriti, family, children) or outside rental groups.
