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.

The goal of the Mills College Pool is to create an environment that promotes safety and enjoyment of ALL pool users. Some of the pool users include Mills College swim team, Mills College classes, Mills College student events, our swim lesson programs, youth swim meets and other events, as well as recreation and lap swimming. All of these programs factor into the published schedule. We are pleased to offer such an important service to the community and to so many types of users.

Please understand that the pool reserves the right to modify our schedule at any time but every attempt will be made to inform pool users in advance when there will be changes, staffing issues, pool maintenance problems, weather and other safety issues which may necessitate closing the pool.. However, the pool still may be closed without notice. Please subscribe to our email list for updates and announcements for last minute closures.

Mills College reserves the right to refuse service to any person at any time. Any patron that does not abide by a pool rule or the Code of Conduct 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.
