Georgia Tech McAuley Aquatic Center

Home to the Georgia Tech Swimming and Diving teams this facility was originally built for the 1996 Olympic Games. The 11 ft deep competition pool includes an adjustable ramp that allows us to establish a shallow section when needed to introduce divers to their first breaths underwater. Additionally, we have access to a 17ft diving well when available. In March 2016, the McAuley Aquatic Center topped the list of “The 10 Best Collegiate Competition Swimming Pools” by College Ranker.
