Free Residence Swimming

Come down to Goodwin and experience Sport Sheffield’s very own 33 metre indoor heated pool, completely free of charge! This free weekly session is on every Friday between 6-8pm, courtesy of Residence Life!

There is a reason why swim, sauna & steam is one of the most popular activities on the Residence Life sport programme. Swimming is not only one of the most pleasurable forms of exercise, but the contact with water is very beneficial and helps loosen up your body and mind. The regular rhythm of the stroke, the immersion in the water and the concentration on the technique quickly feels like a relaxing meditation in the water - and the best thing about it is that you can use the sauna and steam room after the swim!

The swimming pool is supervised by our team of qualified pool lifeguards. You have to be able to swim to participate.
