CLEMSON — The natatorium at Clemson University’s Fike Recreation Center will close temporarily on Aug. 1, as previously announced, so that repairs to address immediate needs of the pool can be made. The repairs are expected to take approximately two weeks, during which time the pool will be closed.

Following completion of these repairs, assuming that no other issues needing immediate attention are discovered, the university plans to return the facility to normal operations while assessments of the facility and its use continue. Additional closures have not been scheduled but may be needed as the assessments are performed.

Clemson appreciates the value of having an aquatic facility to serve its students, employees and the community and will continue to evaluate both the condition of this dated facility and how to best meet the aquatic needs of the university community.
