Chandler Pool

Home to the Wellesley College Swimming & Diving Team, Wellesley College’s Chandler Pool is an eight-lane, 25 meter pool with an accompanying one-meter and three-meter diving well. In addition to varsity practices and competitions, Chandler Pool is also used for physical education classes, Water Polo Team practices, student recreation, employee recreation and special events for the local community on a rental basis.  Open to students, College employees and their immediate family members (age restrictions), and select paid memberships, Chandler Pool also hosts a range of swimming programs for the local community (contact Marni Friedman @ 781-283-2002 if interested).

Pool Use Protocols

As of August 2021, access to the Chandler Pool is restricted to on campus students and College employees ONLY who are a part of the Campus COVID vaccination and testing protocols. This means no family members or paid memberships until further notice. As of January 31, 2022, reservations are NOT required. All users must check in at the Front Desk and be prepared to show their College ID before entering the locker rooms.  The locker rooms will be available for changing, storage of belongings, and showering.  Masks must be worn at all times in the KSC except when actually in the water.  There is NO TOWEL SERVICE so users must provide their own towels.  Users are permitted to bring their own equipment or use what is available on deck - kickboards, noodles, etc.
