The Rutgers Swimming and Diving program has found a home at the Rutgers Aquatic Center, located in the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center on the Busch Campus.
The building houses a competitive-size pool, which measures 50 meters by 25 meters in width. It also has one movable bulkhead, separating the swimming and diving areas. The pool has eight Olympic standard lanes. For collegiate and NCAA meets, the pool area can be converted to eight NCAA standard lanes with 10 warmup lanes.
The diving area consists of two one-meter springboards, two three-meter springboards, and a 10-meter diving tower. There are three takeoff platforms which are five, seven and a half, and 10 meters in height. The depth of the diving area is 17 feet at its deepest and six feet at its shallowest.
The L-shaped auxiliary pool is 30 feet by 60 feet with a movable floor, which can be raised to deck level. The other side is 30 x 90 feet. There are five lanes with a movable bulkhead.
The facility can seat up to 1,200 spectators. There are 600 permanent chairs with backs, and 600 seats in roll-out bleachers. Additional seating is a possibility for the future.
The main pool area is equipped with an electronic scoring board.
This state-of-the-art center has been built with two sets of locker rooms, one to accommodate the varsity teams, and the other for general use. There are also trainer and medical rooms, an equipment room, a team meeting/conference room, and office space for the coaching staff.
