Code of Conduct for Mills College Pool Users 

Thank you for your patronage to the Mills College Pool. The Mills College Pool is owned, operated and maintained by Mills College. It is a privilege to swim at the Mills College pool.

Please note that if you do not abide by a rule or the Code of Conduct you will be asked to cease the behavior, and may be asked to leave the facility for the day, an extended period of time, or indefinitely.

Mills College reserves the right to refuse service to any person at any time, and deviate from our schedule at any time. We program to allow for programs and scheduling that align with the Mills College academic calendar. While every attempt will be made to inform pool users in advance when there will be a change, staffing issues, pool maintenance problems, weather and other safety issues may necessitate closing the pool without notice. However, the pool may also be closed without notice. Mills does not offer memberships to the pool.

The following are examples (not an all-inclusive list) of infractions of rules of conduct that may result in denial of service. Including campus ban:

  • Disobedience, including but not limited to failure of refusal to obey the rules of the pool or instructions of a lifeguard or other Trefethen Aquatic Center employee.
  • Theft or inappropriate removal or posession of College property or other assets not belonging to you.
  • Unauthorized use of the Trefethen Aquatic Center equipment or materials, including the pool itself.
  • Use of abusive or threatening language either written or verbal, toward any other person.
  • Provoking a fight, fighting or threatening violence.
  • Negligence or improper conduct leading to damage of Trefethen Aquatic Center or customer-owned property.
  • Harassing or retaliating against an involved party who reported issued or concerns to Mills Staff.
