Clare Hall swimming pool and gym

Swimming Pool

Clare Hall is one of the few Cambridge colleges to have an indoor heated swimming pool. Other than agreements with local swimming trainers, use of the pool is restricted to College members, Life Members and staff. Details of current opening hours and booking slots may be found here, and a timetable for September 2021 here. Any changes will be updated via these documents, and summarised in College-wide email communications.

A range of membership options are planned for reintroduction in Michaelmas Term 2021. Until further notice, use of the pool under the terms outlined above is free at the point of consumption.

More information on children's swimming lessons can be found here


Clare Hall has a gym which is located in the south-west corner of West Court. Membership is paused while Covid-19 restrictions are in place, and the facility is shut to all users.
