In addition to acting as home to the university's varsity swimming and diving teams, the pool at Lineberry Natatorium has regular open swimming hours. At times, the pool also plays host to physical education lessons from the Outdoor Education Program in activities such as kayaking and scuba.
Retractable roof panels mean those visiting the indoor facility don't have to miss out on good-weather days.
Angert Family Climbing Wall
The Angert Family Climbing Wall, open to the public and located on the third floor of the Huntington Gym, is a modern facility with frequently updated routes. The climbing wall features quality equipment, including new flooring, crash pads, and holds.
Located on the lower campus across the street from the Broad Street Residential community, Whitnall hosts a variety of intramural sports programs throughout the year.
It is also a common gathering place for other major campus events such as Homecoming and Reunion.
Seasonally, the Glendening Boathouse on nearby Lake Moraine serves as a rental center for students interested in setting out on the water. Whether one wishes to paddle, sail, or simply float atop the waves, the boathouse — which is also the home of Colgate's men's and women's rowing teams — has a rental to suit the need.
