Student Leisure Pool
The Texas Tech Student Leisure Pool is one of the premiere achievements of the Rec Sports Department. Completed in May of 2009, the Student Leisure Pool represents the largest leisure pool on a college campus in the United States. With a 645ft. long lazy river as the center piece of the design, the pool brought in more than 70,000 visitors in its first summer open to members.
The Student Leisure Pool was approved by the students of Texas Tech University by referendum on October 6, 2006. A fee increase of $10 per semester to the student recreation fee was instituted for construction of the new Leisure Pool. In addition, students voted on special features to be included in the project. $7.5 million was originally earmarked for construction, and was increased to $8.4 million when construction costs increased.

Indoor Aquatic Center
The Aquatic Center at Texas Tech Univesity Recreational Sports allows the department to maintain an open pool facility year-round. The facility is now entirely indoors, and is covered by one of the largest air-supported structures in the world, newly replaced in the summer of 2012. The facility boasts a 50-meter end-to-end length, as well as standard 25-yard and 25-meter lanes at varying depths, and a 13-foot-deep diving well with two one-meter springboards. The large shallow end of the pool contains a water volleyball net and basketball hoop, and is a popular spot for water aerobics classes.
