CWU Aquatic Center:  1510 N Walnut Street


Please do not stop on the street in front of the pool building to let your swimmers out of the vehicle.  If dropping off, pull into the parking lot across the street from the pool entrance and let your swimmer out there.  Swimmers can then use the crosswalk to walk to the pool entrance.  If escorting your child or staying on campus for practice, visitors can use the X-12 lot (free gravel lot just past the aquatic center), a timed parking space, or buy a $6 daily permit using one of the following methods:



VISITORS now have 3 ways to purchase a daily permit:


  1. Click here to go to our Parking Services webpage. Select VISITOR DAILY PERMITS, click on “create one” to make an account, and follow prompts to buy a virtual daily permit.


  1. Use the QR code on our new parking lot signs to buy a virtual daily permit. Capture the QR code then scroll down to “create one” to make an account. Follow the prompts.


  1. Purchase a virtual daily permit at a kiosk in lot I-15 (SURC) or G-16 (near Starbucks). An additional kiosk will soon be located in lot Q-14 (Nicholson Pavilion).


There is no free parking in lots S-10 or W-12, which means you cannot park in those lots and leave your vehicle to escort your child into the aquatic center.  If you do, your vehicle will most likely be ticketed.


Locker Rooms:  Due to construction on CWU campus, we do not currently have access to the locker rooms/showers.  We are asking swimmers to arrive and leave in their suits as much as possible.  The bathrooms in the front lobby area are available for changing, if needed.  We will update everyone when the locker rooms open again.  Thank you for your patience!
