NOTICE - The Acadia University Swimming Pool will be closed on Wed. June 8 until Noon (12:00 pm AT) for required maintenance.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Acadia Athletics Complex will be opening the last of its recreational locations for use, beginning Monday January 17th. Below is a summary of our facility availability and programming.

While the number of positive cases remains high, we plan to welcome our community users with memberships to the Athletics Complex's Fitness Centre starting on Monday, January 10. Only those with existing memberships will be allowed to access the fitness centre along with Acadia students, staff and faculty. No drop-ins are permitted. You must be a current member to access the Fitness Centre.


With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in the Province of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Health Authority and Acadia University are taking quick action to reduce the chance of the spread of the omicron variant of COVID-19. The Athletics complex will be closed to community drop-ins, community memberships, and external rentals until further notice.


With the plan of Nova Scotia entering a modified Phase 5 of its pandemic plan on Monday, October 4, 2021, Acadia University will maintain many of the current health and safety protocols in keeping with their safety-first approach.


With the recent announcement by the Province of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Health Authority anticipates the beginning of Phase 5 of the provincial reopening plan to occur on September 15, 2021.

The Acadia swimming pool will reopen to the community beginning this Monday, June 21. The pool will return to its operational parameters set prior to the April 28 Provincial shutdown.

Based on the announcement today by the Government of Nova Scotia, the Province will be moving to Phase 2 of the five-phase reopening plan. With the announcement of Phase 2, the Acadia Athletics Complex will reopen to students and community members on Thursday, June 17 beginning at 6:30 am.

The current state in Nova Scotia has forced us to revisit our operational plan and put in place measures that limit access to the Acadia Athletics Complex to ensure the safety of our students and members.

Beginning Monday, February 8th, sever parts of the Acadia Athletics Complex will be re-opened to Acadia staff/students and Community memberships including the Walking Track, Pool and Racquetball / Squash Courts.
