Swimming facilities

The Centre for Sport and Exercise (CSE) is able to take advantage of the University of Edinburgh’s fantastic 25 metre six lane swimming pool.

The pool is located on the third floor of the St. Leonard's Land building on Holyrood Road.

We share the pool facility with the Institute for Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences ( ISPEHS) and Edinburgh University Sports Union (EUSU) clubs. Our available times are allocated to member lane swimming, included in the price of CSE membership, and swimming lessons, which are available at an additional cost.

Lane swimming

During members lane swimming sessions the pool is divided up into slow, medium and fast lanes. You should be able to swim to participate in members lane swimming.

Service improvements

The pool now has a dedicated staff team, a brand new reception area, and new digital signage. More hairdryers have also been installed.


We regret that the pool is not fully accessible at the moment.
