The Boilermaker Aquatic Center, which opened in August 2001, has elevated Purdue swimming and diving facilities to a level equal to the finest in the nation. While serving as home to the men's and women's swimming and diving programs, the Boilermaker Aquatic Center also provides a home for all recreational and educational swimming on the West Lafayette campus. Careful scheduling and use of moveable bulkheads allow multiple and simultaneous uses of the Holloway Pool and the diving well. The Center, located just west of the Co-Rec near the intersection of Stadium and Martin Jischke Drive, is a cooperative effort involving Intercollegiate Athletics, the Division of Recreational Sports, and the Department of Health, Kinesiology and Leisure Studies.
