Aquatics Center

The Lee County/FGCU Aquatics Center features two outdoor pools. Our 50-meter pool contains 8 long-course lanes or 20 short-course lanes, perfect for lap swimmers and swim team training. We also have a 25-yard, 8-lane pool with both 3- and 1-meter diving boards, ideal for recreational use or diving. Our Aquatics Center is the ideal facility for swim teams looking to train or host swim meets or other competitive aquatic events.

Recreation Field

We have approximately 6 acres of multi-purpose field space. Our largest field, Recreation Field 1 is located within the main campus loop and is primarily used for our Intramural Sports program and Sport Clubs.  This field can accomodate up to 3 regulation size fields.  Our Sport Clubs also utilize Recreation Field 2, located in South Village. Both fields are also heavily used for informal recreation and special events throughout the year. 


The Recreation Ooutdoor Complex (ROC) is adjacent to Alico Arena & the FGCU Tennis Complex. The lighted outdoor facility includes 2 basketball courts, 2 sand volleyball courts and green space with an outdoor functional training station.  

SoVi Pool

Our newest facility, the SoVi Pool is in the interior of South Village. The resort-style pool has a zero-depth entry and features a water volleyball  and basketball area, large deck space and a grilling area.  This facility is the ideal place to host your groups next event.


The Waterfront is one of FGCU's premier facilities. It's located within North Lake Village and offers a variety of activities including kayaks, paddleboards, sailboats, tubing, cornhole, swimming or lounging in the sun with friends.
