Who Can Use It?

The Spieker Aquatics Complex is located on Bancroft Way, between Dana St. and Ellsworth St. To access the locker room and pool, enter the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) locker rooms and proceed south toward the back of either the women’s or men’s locker room. Use the doors at the back of the locker room to access the pool deck.
