Alfred State to Close Pool in 2024

Due to structural concerns, Alfred State will permanently close its current swimming pool after the conclusion of the current swimming and diving season. A professional engineering study has indicated that continuing to operate the pool within Orvis now and in the future, even after a years-long rebuild, could damage the building.

Aligned with our master planning efforts for a new field house, plans are actively underway to request integration of a new pool in the funding request.  We will explore the best alternative use of the current space for athletics and recreation by creating a task force to make recommendations.

We will facilitate supporting the Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Program’s and Alfred State will actively work to minimize the impact on current student athletes and other pool users.
