Sport & Exercise

Swimming facilities

Sport & Exercise 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 Sport & Exercise 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. To participate in member lane swimming you should be able to swim at least 2 lengths of the pool without stopping.
