Plumley Fitness Center - Goodyear Pool

Named after an 1896 Norwich alum and former U.S. Army colonel, Norwich University president from 1920 to 1934 and, later, as Vermont representative to the U.S. Congress, the 26,500-square-foot fitness center and 4,000-person event space was originally an armory.

Norwich University Plumley Fitness Center and Goodyear Pool

The armory encompasses a 4,000-person event space and the largest fitness center on campus. Features include basketball courts, a running track, swimming pool, locker rooms and the Stabile Fitness Center, which offers free weights, Nautilus and cardio machines. Navy and Marine Corps ROTC program offices are also found here.

Goodyear Pool Hours

Our student lifeguard availability determines the lap swimming hours for Goodyear Pool. The times may change throughout the semester and differ from Fall to Spring semesters. There will be no lap swim times available during Academic Breaks.

Lap swimming is only for fitness purposes, swimming within the lane, and it is encouraged to share the lane if busy. Goodyear Pool is a competitive facility; therefore, the pool temperatures are between 77 and 80 degrees.

The pool hours will be posted outside the pool area and at the fitness center desk in Plumley. You can also reach out to the Athletics Office Manager, Allie Gratton, at
